Facilitation

An Easier Option for Group Communication

Our trained facilitators can help groups with effective communication, problem solving, consensus building, and strategic planning.  Often used to help groups set goals and objectives, DRC facilitators can help make difficult conversations easier enabling people to express their views fully while preserving mutual respect.

WHAT IS FACILITATION?

Facilitate literal means “to make easy or easier.” At the DRC, facilitation is a process where trained facilitators help groups of people work together more easily and effectively. Our facilitators lead the group process allowing them to examine and solve problems, make decisions and improve the way they communicate.

HOW DOES FACILITATION WORK?

Often used by businesses, facilitation can improve a group’s creativity and problem solving potential. This DRC service includes preliminary assessment, structured group interaction with a neutral facilitator who manages the discussion and records the efforts and outcomes of the group. This process creates an environment of open, directed discussion used for complex decision-making and strategic planning as well as situational or organizational changes.
