Our Facilitation Services

How we facilitate

Our facilitation approach and processes are aligned with the values and reflect the core competencies set forth by the International Association of Facilitators. We also apply our belief, knowledge, and skills that stems from practicing Nonviolent Communication. At the same time, we value the Appreciative Inquiry approach in working with clients, as well as the findings of Positive Psychology.

Engaging us for work

Each facilitation project starts with an initial work done in close cooperation with our clients (the group or team members, and/or those representing them). At this stage, our aim is to build mutual trust, respect, an understating of what matters to the client, and finding agreement on the best way to use our facilitation skills to support achieving those objectives.

We fully explore and openly acknowledge any conflict of interest at the earliest opportunity, and certainly prior to engaging for work. At the same time, we discuss on confidentiality matters, and agree on what can be disclosed and how.

We acknowledge and respect the individuality of each client’s environment, and seek for client support to let us understand the peculiarities that distinguish their work and business environment. These may include, though may not be limited to, elements of cultural diversity, what matters most, ways of working, and the nature of their business.

Hence, in choosing facilitation processes, methods and tools, we apply the best of our skills and knowledge, and seek to dialogue with our clients, to get confirmation that our ideas best serve their needs. We seek our clients’ full involvement and engagement to select, design, and adapt processes, methods, and tools that will achieve their goals, and be sustainable to their environment.

Giuseppe facilitates comfortably in English, Italian and Spanish, and has good understanding of French, Portuguese and Turkish.

COACHING Vs FACILITATION

"A coach is not a facilitator. Facilitators work with groups to help them make a decision. An ideal facilitator helps the process, but stays out of it, seldom making suggestions. Once the group has come to a decision or consensus, the facilitator's job is done. The word comes from Latin, meaning 'someone who makes it easy'. A coach is more likely to work one-to-one (which a facilitator never does), and also a coach will bring far more of his or her own personality into the coaching."

(From the book 'How Coaching Works')
