“That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.” Doris Lessing
“Our challenge. How do we create organisational coherence…how do we create structures that move with change, that are flexible and adaptive…that enable rather than constrain? How do we resolve the need for personal freedom and autonomy with organisational needs for prediction and control?” Margaret Wheatley

Through facilitation organisational ‘knots’ can be found and untangled. Team learning and commitment ore common outcomes.

The Network Consulting Group offers outstanding facilitation services to organisations. Areas where facilitation is commonly felt to be useful include, amongst others:

ENGAGE is a Visual Mapping tool that every good Facilitator should have in his/her toolkit! It allows a collaborative and developmental approach to be adopted in any group process.
ENGAGE ensures that there are no disengaged passengers. It guarentees that the ideas of all participants emerge and are evaluated. It ensures that the same old loud voices don’t dominate the meeting or decisions.
ENGAGE challenges peoples thinking. It allows emergent patterns and issues to become visible. The ‘real picture’ emerges. Decision making becomes more grounded.
