FACILITATIVE LEADERSHIP

Today, the managerial leadership role has evolved from being an order-giver to being a team player. This is because no individual, no matter how brilliant the person is, has all the answers to the complex problems that confront organizations today. People working in teams have better answers as they brainstorm, discuss and synthesize individual ideas leading to both workable and do-able solutions. For a Manager to fit into this new work structure, he needs to be a better team player. Facilitation, the process of making things easier for work teams, is a world-wide competence for managers, heads of taskforces, committees or managing departments/units in their organization. This programme has been carefully designed to transform leaders and managers as skilled facilitators and equip them with the core skills they need to achieve results in the fast changing work environment.
