What I Do

Fa.cil.i.tate [fuh-sil-i-teyt] – verb

  1. To make easier or less difficult; help forward (an action, a process, etc.): Careful planning facilitates any kind of work.
  2. To assist the progress of (a person).

When I tell people that I’m a facilitator, I usually get a lot of blank looks and curious questions.

“What’s that?”

I work with individuals, teams and organizations to engage them in processes and conversations that help them identify their preferred future and catapult them toward it.  Much of what I do relates to strategic mission, tactics and goals.

“So, you’re like a consultant?”

No, not exactly.  Consultants typically rely on their own experience and expertise to prescribe a path for the future.  I’m much more of an “equipper” or “resourcer” than an expert.

“You’re a professional coach then.”

Well, closer at least.  I do try to ask a lot of questions and make observations as I come alongside individuals and organizations, helping them tap into their full potential—latent energy as Bob Buford calls it.  But I don’t hold any professional coaching certifications.  At least not yet.

“So…what do you do?”

I engage churches and non-profit organizations in order to help them discover the “what” and “how” of their calling.  I walk them through custom-designed processes that challenge them to evaluate their current reality, explore new models and methods, and establish a clear path to their preferred future.  I try to make the road ahead less difficult and assist with their progress.  But its not really about what I do; its what we do.
