What is a facilitator? Here is what my mentors at Zenergy have to say in The Zen of Groups, by Dale Hunter, Anne Bailey and Bill Taylor 1996:
“A facilitator’s job is to make it easy for a group to be successful.”
Facilitate = to make easy or more convenient.
“Group facilitation is the art of guiding the group process towards the agreed objectives. A facilitator guides the process and does not get involved in content. A facilitator intervenes to protect the group process and keep the group on track to fulfil its task.”
As your marketing coach, facilitator or consultant, I will help you to set ambitious goals, make well-organised plans and design clever strategies to achieve what you want to achieve, within your desired time frame and keeping to a budget.
Again, here is what Zenergy have to say about coaching:
“Coaching is a relationship between two parties in which one person (the coachee) is supported and challenged to achieve their goals by another person (the coach). It can also be a relationship between a group or team and a coach.”
“A coach is a rigorous ally who will not let us subvert ourselves.”
“Coaching is a contracted relationship. It is by agreement. A coach cannot be imposed on someone.”
“A coach is someone who is committed to the coachee meeting their objectives.”
