Business facilitation

Business facilitation

Fostering communication through structure and behaviours

Fostering communication in a business setting through the right structure and behaviour so that a group of people reach an outcome that everyone feels responsible for and fully committed to.

When to use

  • When a strategic team needs to act together as one, and the different perceptions, interests and viewpoints must be aligned.
  • To combine the know-how of individuals to achieve an outcome.
  • After conflict to reconcile and establish trust within a team.


  • Provides a neutral facilitator to focus on how a decision is made without influencing the actual decision itself.
  • Supports the development of respect for others and awareness of other people’s filters.
  • The methods and behaviours learned are often used and spread across an organisation long after our consultant has left.
