MGC offers facilitation services and training. Our facilitators work with groups of all kinds — from housing associations, to boards of directors, to council meetings — to help them develop and plan effectively. Our facilitators excel at creating a working meeting environment in which participants are able to plan, make decisions, build team spirit and collaboration, communicate across disciplines, agencies and departments. We specialize in board rules and procedures, environmental issue sand development.
The “facilitator” is a guide or “discussion leader” for the group. The process of facilitation is a way of providing leadership without taking the reigns. A facilitator’s job is to get others to assume responsibility and take the lead.
Expert facilitation can be particularly helpful where issues are complex or contentious, where perspectives and interests are many and diverse, and where a high degree of creativity, consensus and collaboration are required.
