facilitation and facilitated workshops are key facets of Options &
Directions’ integrated approach of “strategic consultancy” for
businesses. Our “need specific” approach combines one or more facets
of facilitation, coaching and training, and is designed to achieve
tangible improvements in bottom line performance for our Clients.
facilitation is a structured approach to achieving outcomes
facilitate group meetings and workshops that are structured to achieve a
previously agreed outcome. They are flexible and responsive enough to deal
with whatever arises, whether it be a business issue or inter-personal.
Using a facilitator enables everyone to participate fully and helps you
achieve things that could not even be considered in the usual office and
in its role as facilitator is particularly valuable during the budget and
strategy planning part of the year. Corporate facilitations (and if
relevant, executive retreats) are designed to influence beliefs and
values, identity and purpose, so that common desirable goals are clearly
identified, along with the “how to” and the action plan, which enable
the required outcomes to be achieved.
your objective is to get to know each other better, team building to work
together better, to be more innovative, to explore scenarios, or to get
down to work on your strategy, business plan or budget, your company will
achieve a lot more in the big picture sense, if you get away, change the
environment and allow time for the process.
of course, the flexible planning of your event, allows the retreat venue
and associated activities, to meet the specific likes and interests of the
managers and staff of your business. As you’d expect, there is a wide
range of indoor and/or outdoor activities you can include in your retreat,
including the perennial favourite… golf!
activities break the normal state, change the environment, and stimulate
new thoughts and relationships. More, they can be designed as analogies
for the project in hand and used to great effect throughout the workshop.
