Facilitation

Definition

Facilitation provides a group with a coherent path of measured, creative and efficient steps.   It brings shared solutions, whilst still favouring the engagement and enjoyment of participants because of the neutral role of the facilitator regarding the project in hand.

The facilitator does not have the answer to the problem, but simply offers a path to finding one though engaging with the competent parties.

Why ?

Solving complex problems which require the expertise of various involved parties.

Who is it for ?

Companies, public entities, associations, academic institutions.

When?

As intermittent workshops or as part of a process that requires several meetings.

Where does it happen?

On line

Numerous online tools allow us to profit from extremely efficient collaborative experiences. It also gives the opportunity of combining periods of synchronized and non-synchronized reflection.   

In house

In an environment that allows movement and numerous interactions and that provides a new perspective on the question to resolve.

Outisde

Facilitation often depends on a metaphor to encourage original idea associations.  Immersed in nature, the participants’ experience is extremely powerful.

Why the ateliers C ?

Workshops are spaces where reflection, creativity, modeling and assembly take place.  With this in mind, les ateliers C facilitate the formation of projects and creative and collective initiatives.
