facilitate sessions and move the project along

Frequently Asked Questions

A traditional consultant usually plays two roles when they engage with a customer:

  1. provider of the knowledge and experience necessary for the business improvement
  2. facilitator of the improvement, working with the team to ensure that work gets done

In a Visible Pathway Project the content provides the knowledge and experience, however you need to provide the facilitation. This short Project is to help prepare the chosen person for this Project Facilitator role.

The ideal PF has certain attributes:

  • a good listener
  • interested in people and the business
  • a good organiser
  • happy to speak up when needed, even to those more senior!
  • determined and reliable

You do not need any specific knowledge about the subject of the Project, don’t worry! 😅

How to be a Project Facilitator is delivered entirely using the Visible Pathway online platform. It contains a mix of audio and video Episodes coupled with multiple downloadable resources to help you.

All of the content is yours to re-visit and use in perpetuity so you can train multiple Project Facilitators if you wish.

The whole Project will likely take no longer than 1 hour but you’ll probably re-visit the content numerous times to refresh your memory.

You must complete the Project before your company starts its first Visible Pathway Project to ensure that you are prepared to help your company achieve its goals.
