Group Facilitation

Our Whole Person Process Facilitation creates engaging, effective meetings with great results by tapping into the creativity and collective genius of the people in your organization.

There are many things to pay attention to in ensuring effective group facilitation. We deliver those things and then go beyond them, recognizing the unseen world of intuitive knowledge, including the collective consciousness, as valuable assets for any organization to work from. Whole Person Facilitation works well with groups from 6-150 people and from 3 hours in length to several days.


Working together in collaboration

We have chosen theories and frameworks that we have found to work in enabling consistent learning results in adults and what many who work with us say it is like "magic". What we offer here is not the "only way". Its usefulness is that it works, has a good track record, is transferable to any situation, and it is duplicable and simple.

Meetings of any kind are useful only if learning is taking place. Our promise to you is that through this way of group facilitation, learning is enhanced, potential is tapped into that has lain dormant, and in the end, it takes less time and time is used more effectively. The group benefits and achieves outcomes, usually beyond their expectations.


In using Whole Person Process Facilitation, the components that are attended to in designing the meeting include:

  1. Creating an accepting rather than defensive climate. Placement of chairs, role of food, other d├ęcor, attitude and responses. Being conscious of the implications of actions and behaviors of the facilitator.

  2. Introductions. The difference between authenticity and icebreakers.

  3. Hopes and fears as a way of identifying objectives.

  4. Right placement of your statement of objectives for your meeting/teaching session.

  5. Adult learning styles using the Learning Style Inventory.

  6. Right Brain + Left Brain + easily connecting integrated use of the two = whole brain learning and problem solving.

  7. Intuition.

  8. Transfer in and bridging exercises.

  9. Varying the levels the facilitator works on-in front of group, with group, apart from group.

  10. Maximizing energy of the group by doing activities singularly, in pairs, triads, fours, whole group. How and when to use each of these and how to use them to work with each other to keep the energy high.

  11. Timing.

  12. Attending to the energy of the facilitator and 'taking care' of them.

  13. Working beyond the information that is provided by the five senses and intellectual knowledge.

  14. Feedback tied into hopes and fears. Evaluation that is useful and also part of the ongoing learning experience.

With Whole Person Process Facilitation, we stay with a basic design, but make adjustments as we go in order to meet the needs of the group and to ensure that the group works towards its stated outcomes and objectives.
