Facilitation Program 

 

Whether it’s a corporate retreat, a department upheaval, or a community dispute, sometimes you need help to keep that important meeting on track. SEEDS can custom design a process to help your group, organization, or community work more collaboratively and reach your goals.

 

To set up your facilitation, contact Barbara Lipson at barbara@seedscrc.org

 

 

What is facilitation?

Facilitation is a way to help a group accomplish its goals. A facilitator trained in group dynamics helps participants understand their common objectives and guides them in formulating a plan to achieve them without having a position on the issues under discussion or an emotional stake in the outcome. The facilitator also helps the group to achieve consensus on disagreements.

 

 

Multi Party Facilitation for Individuals

Some community issues involve multiple parties and require a customized approach rather than the typical community mediation process.  SEEDS offers facilitation services to bring all the affected parties together to work toward a solution.

 

Who Can Benefit

If you are part of a group or community (church, sports club, neighborhood association, school) that needs some help to improve communication and reach agreement on a complex issue, you may want to consider our facilitation services.
