What Does a Strategic Planning Facilitator Do?

[fa icon="calendar"] May 29 / by Anthony Taylor

What is a strategic planning facilitator, what do they do, and why do you need one?

If you are planning the future of your organization, or are trying to make difficult decisions on certain aspects of your business, a facilitator will make the process easier.

It's easier for a few reasons:

  • They don't have any vested interest in any decisions so they ask questions that will uncover the core issues.
  • They can control the conversation so that everyone gets an opportunity to speak and share their input.
  • They can ask probing questions without creating conflict.

Using a facilitator is especially useful if you're the leader of the organization because this way you can participate, instead of having to lead.

This will result in better information, better decisions, and better direction for the organization.

Is your organization getting ready for its strategic planning cycle, or are you being faced with some decisions that require the input of your whole management team? Find out more about how working with a facilitator can maximize the value of your next strategy session:
