Facilitation versus Facilitating

At MG RUSH, we shift the thinking of our participants from facilitation (as a noun or a static way of being) to facilitating (as a verb or a dynamic way of doing)—making it easier for meeting participants to collaborate, leading to more informed decisions. Facilitating requires speaking with people rather than at them. Facilitating creates an environment that builds teamwork and innovation. Facilitating stimulates and inspires people and cultures.

We build competence around structured facilitating—getting participants to improve . . .MG RUSH Facilitation Training

  • How to think about group decision-making
  • Skills such as active listening, clear speaking, keen observing, and precise challenging 
  • Being content-neutral; passionate about results, yet unbiased about path
  • Stressing the importance of your holarchy (ie, organizational goal alignment)

Through our Professional Facilitation Training, participants develop consciousness about the challenges and differences of becoming a facilitative leader–that extends above and beyond traditional leadership, so that groups and teams realize the full potential of commitment, consensus, ownership, and responsibility.
