Facilitation Techniques


Welcome to the Facilitation folder of the Impact Alliance Resource Center. Organizational and/or community development inevitably requires facilitating for change. Facilitators often lead groups in reaching agreements through constructive dialogue. They help build a vision and develop plans that motivate a team, organization, or community to achieve their goals. Effective process facilitation can benefit any meeting, and can assist with decision-making, strategic planning and hundreds of other organizational needs.

Leaders and managers need the knowledge and tools to facilitate active participation in group settings. These skills provide a foundation upon which organizations and communities can implement and sustain innovation and improve team performance.

The resources in this folder offer guides for how leaders can improve their existing skills and learn new methods to facilitate community meetings, lead trainings, and oversee workshops for NGOs or CBOs.
