Facilitating For Action
It is important that there is time invested in working ‘on the business’ to balance with working ‘in the business’.
There can be great value in taking some time away from the day to day. You may want to:
√ Create future direction or a strategic plan
√ Solve a business issue
√ Focus on an specific opportunity or project
√ Get your team together & check if you are achieving what you intended
√ You want success in the form of outcomes and actions from the day
√ You want value for the time invested
√ You want people to engage in the process and contribute
√ You want to know what happens next
A red-group facilitator will support you to plan the session and gain commitment from those attending before the session.
The session can be facilitated in a variety of ways. We will use the most appropriate format to achieve the pre determined outcomes, suit your business style and the number of people attending.
Facilitation of a planning day or offsite should be results focused. Often choosing a different environment to the ‘office’. Our approach encourages people to think differently, think more broadly than their own role and focus on identifying and solving problems. We draw on a range of techniques, activities and structures to create an environment conducive to engaging the group.
What happens after the session is often the challenge. Our sessions conclude with actions and responsibilities for the follow though.
If you have a conference coming up, please contact us to get some ideas about how this could be a huge success.
A session could be two hours, two days or a number of sessions held over a longer time frame.
It is worth remembering that a facilitated session is a great opportunity to demonstrate to your people that you value their contribution. To be included in a planning or problem solving session, is a development opportunity. Your people will engage with the process and you will retain them because they want to be part of the solution and future success!

When you consistently maintain a positive frame of mind, you'll become known as a problem-solver rather than a complainer. People avoid complainers. They seek out problem-solvers.
