“Leading is about learning how to be a facilitator” – Ashif Shaikh, 2022 Harvard Kennedy School for Public Leadership Gleitsman Award Recipient

Facilitation has been a pillar of Project Management success throughout recent decades and as we continue into the modern digital age with machine learning, AI, robotic automation and design thinking, it has never been more important. The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) defines the core competencies of facilitation as:

  1. Create collaborative client relationships
  2. Plan appropriate group processes
  3. Create and sustain a participatory environment
  4. Guide group to appropriate and useful outcomes
  5. Build and maintain professional knowledge
  6. Model positive professional attitude
