From fighting each other
Using facilitation as a leadership tool is an iterative process where curiosity is the fuel. In contradiction to a regular leadership process where people fight for a membership in the club of the popular or to win the competition on becoming the wisest. We can’t afford this battle anymore. We live in a complex world and time where we need all the knowledge we have available – everyone’s contribution. So it ought not to be necessary fighting for the seats in the community anymore.
…to exploring together
How do you go from battling to exploring? And lead everyone in the team to follow? First step is for you as a leader to take. You have to let go of the need to control and the focus on a specific goal. Instead you have to find faith and trust towards your employees…after all you hired them! It is your job to support your employees to investigate and explore solutions together. Solutions that matters to all, that is.
To open this field of faith and trust where creative exploring can accelerate, you have to generate
- mutual understanding
At this point everyone uses each others thoughts and ideas to become wiser and take wiser steeps. This is going from demand-and-control to facilitate-and-lead. To facilitate is all about creating value that is worth more than what you can create alone.
