Facilitative Leadership Workshop

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Course Description

Traditional leadership relies on a top-down approach where one person leads and others fall in line behind them. Our rapidly changing times call for a different approach. For our organizations to thrive, we need systems of leadership that engage people differently and create a sense of safety, satisfaction, and belonging for all involved.

A Facilitative Leader leads the group, not through the power of their title, but rather, brings about desired outcomes through guidance, support, and skillfulness.

Facilitative Leadership involves the practices of:

  • Self awareness and understanding where we have strengths and where we struggle
  • Deep listening in order to understand people’s needs
  • Understanding “leadership ecosystems”
  • Learning to trust and value the wisdom created by the group
  • Empowering people to fully step into their own role in the leadership ecosystem

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what facilitative leadership is and what possible when we employ it
  • Differentiate between traditional leadership and facilitative leadership and how and when we benefit from using facilitative leadership
  • Deepen our understanding ourselves, our default leadership styles, and our strengths and struggles so that we can be more effective
  • Understand the “leadership ecosystem”, how all parts of of that system have value and and how to facilitate the power of a system functioning at its best
  • Develop strategies for providing a sense of safety, satisfaction and belonging to all involved in the organization
  • Provide concrete tools that can be employed in the leader’s everyday lives
