Facilitative leadership is transformative. It moves an organization from being focused on “me” (self-interest) to being focused on “we” (common good). Facilitative leaders unify the organization and bring out the best in people. When facilitative leaders focus their attention on others and invite employees to participate, seek their advice, work as a team and build consensus, employees come alive.
The art and science of a facilitative leadership is the ability to connect the hearts and minds of people. It empowers group members to share perspectives and learn from each other. In the process, this increases self-awareness and awareness of others. It accesses the wisdom of the group and creates sustainable solutions with high impact.
