Chapter One: Understanding Facilitation > What Do Facilitators Believe?

What Do Facilitators Believe?

Facilitators operate by a core set of principles. At the heart of these is the belief that two heads are better than one and that, to do a good job, people need to be fully engaged and empowered.

All facilitators firmly believe that:

  • people are intelligent, capable, and want to do the right thing
  • groups can make better decisions than any one person can make alone
  • everyone’s opinion is of equal value, regardless of rank or position
  • people are more committed to the ideas and plans that they have helped to create
  • participants can be trusted to assume accountability for their decisions
  • groups can manage their own conflicts, behaviors, and relationships if they are given the right tools and training
  • the process, if well designed and honestly applied, can be trusted to achieve results
