Target Audience: Individuals interested in learning how to lead effective teams through facilitative leadership.

Workshop Description: To successfully direct the process of teamwork requires experience in working with groups and knowledge about the group process. An effective team leader will use various techniques to make sure the team accomplishes its tasks and that people work together in a congenial and supportive way. A facilitative team leader will let team members decide much about the content of their work, but will give the team clear structure in the process of how the team works together. For example, a facilitative team leader will draw out team members’ ideas and let them make a decision on how the team will proceed on a particular project. At the same time, the ream leader will be firm about the structure (process) of the meeting during which that decision is made, ensuring that all members’ ideas are included and that an effective consensus method is used. To “direct the process” does not mean to order the team about in a directive manner; it means to guide the team by suggesting ways to structure its work so that team members, the team as a whole, and the organization benefit as much as possible.

  • Gain an understanding of the stages of team development.
