Process facilitation – making change happen12. September 2018 - Christina Juul Anderson, Consultant & Bjarne Stark, Manager
Have you ever wondered what it takes to flip the organisational perspective from problem to potential? Read on below to find out.
In modern knowledge-based organisations, creating value is a matter of qualifying solutions through different perspectives – but far too often, differences in views and opinions lead to troublesome collaborations. Leaders not getting along and colleagues spending far too much time arguing about possible solutions, wasting both monetary and human potential.
Engaging people constructively in processes
Process facilitation is about finding ways to engage people constructively in the value creation. Especially in larger international organisations dealing with global markets, customers and very diverse groups of employees, good process and facilitation skills are key to succeeding in bringing people together and unleashing organisational potential across differences and individual agendas. It is ultimately a shift from problem to potential, from ‘no way’ to ‘let’s try’, from differences to similarities, from me to we.
One of the most powerful ways of initiating this shift is through creating engaging processes and better dialogues in leadership as well as in projects, change initiatives and execution. Start by investigating:
- How good and energising are the dialogues we have?
- Do we make the most of our diverse qualities and competencies?
- Are our meetings full of vitality and empowerment?
- Do we manage to involve people and engage them in change initiatives?
- Are we positive and appreciative in our way of making decisions and implementing new ways of working?
If you see the potential for improvement, it may be time to dive into the process field to discover new methods and perspectives.
