Facilitation and Leadership Alignment

Get in touch

Facilitation with EUNEPA

We are familiar with days full of backtoback meetings, jumping from one topic to the next, shifting gears in our heads, working with diverse teams to achieve important goals. At the end of the day, we are tired and drained by too many meetings, many of them poorly run and ineffective. People working ineffectively together is the most often cited obstacle to finding solutions to problems.

Facilitation can be used in all types of settings where people come together and where the group’s voice is significant and decisions need to be taken. These can be staff meetings, project meetings, task force meetings, all the way to strategy meetings, action planning and leadership alignment meetings. At EUNEPA, facilitation is in person or virtual (online facilitation), depending on client needs.

    On Facilitation | A Note from Pari

    I’m not naturally someone who likes center stage. But when facilitating an event, with a small or large group, all that changes.

    It changes because I, as the facilitator, am only the conductor. My role is to give power, hold space, give a voice to each person to take up their instrument, tune it and then together create music – so beautiful on our ears – that sometimes it touches our soul.

    Each person brings a little bit of their own energy into the room. In the beginning, you feel these little bits of energy flying around in all directions and then there comes a moment when you feel all that energy focus and unite in one direction. You see it in people’s eyes, the spark, the curiosity and the power of focused energy.

    There is purpose, a common goal, clarity and vision. This is when you can be part of bringing a group of people together and watching a team emerge. It’s respect, unity, dialogue, vision and accountability. It’s creation and co-creation.

    This is the beauty of facilitation. For me, it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my professional life.

    EUNEPA’s Facilitation Formats

     

    At EUNEPA, facilitation is in person, virtual (online facilitation), or a hybrid combination of the two.

    There is always added value with in-person and face-to-face facilitation, however, due to today’s digital landscape, some companies prefer virtual facilitation. Both these services follow the same procedure outlined below. In our virtual facilitation, the tools and time frame are adjusted, but the outcomes and impact resulting from the facilitation remain the same.

    EUNEPA’s Facilitation Process

    w

    Discovery session

    All our facilitation projects begin with a discussion with our client to best understand their needs, expectations and required outcomes. Depending on the project, we might do a needs assessment to gather more information from group members. This allows us to design the content and process of the facilitation program.

    l

    Facilitation design

    During the facilitation design, we ensure:

    • A safe, neutral, respectful and trusting environment is created
    • Content is created and co-created based on client’s needs and agenda
    • Many times, content is co-created in the moment depending on what serves the client best
    • Process and outcomes are clear
    • Decisions and actions are agreed, by when, by who and how
    • Full facilitation documentation is shared with participants outlining clear actions and follow up
    • When required, accountability measures are planned with the client to ensure implementation and execution is managed effectively

    Leadership Team Alignment

    Whether a leadership team has worked together or is newly formed, external facilitation is useful. Our approach is to empower the team to develop mechanisms to self-facilitate in the future.

    We support leaders, teams and organisations through:

    • Clarification of mission, vision and goals
    • Strategy execution
    • Creativity, mindset shift, energising the team
    • Improved team dynamics, recognition, feedback, building trust and accountability
    • Setting sustainable goals and priorities
    • Significantly improving areas of performance and productivity
    • Identifying and aligning with clarity, impact and influence with team and stakeholders

    Leading Remote Teams

    As our world becomes more digital and we are forced into new ways of working, we need to learn new skills as a leader. How do we lead a remote team? How do we build trust when we do not see one another regularly and work across different geographies?

    We support leaders, teams and organisations through:

    • Virtual team facilitation workshops / leading virtually
    • Leading through crises
    • Virtual onboarding
    • Building a cohesive team virtually
    • Leading blended teams part-remote/part-local (analog)
    • Manage effective and collaborative virtual meetings
    • Identify virtual team building tools
    • Continue learning on the EUNEPA Learning platform
