Facilitators and their Roles

Facilitators and their Roles

Facilitators are usually individuals who assist teams in their meetings, to enhance the process— how the team works and comes to decisions. Generally, the facilitator is not involved in the process or task being examined: He or she is not a stakeholder and may begin team involvement knowing nothing about what is being discussed. Good facilitators ensure that teams don't get bogged down in personality or process issues and that every individual within the group is heard.

Don Aaron Carr, a consultant who specializes in team training, asserts that a good facilitator possesses “an attitude and philosophy that confirms a position of respect and admiration. Therefore, good facilitators display a high tolerance for ambiguity and conflict, patience and persistence.”
