I have always been a facilitator even when I was an FE Lecturer for 18 years.
Teaching to me is essentially facilitating learning. I have also been a trainer for many years – another way to facilitate learning of skills specially for work.
As a manager, my job was to facilitate others doing their jobs. I believe in Servant Leadership as a model for work. I have also done training in the Art of Hosting: I use world cafe, open space and graphic harvesting to engage people in transformational conversations.
I set up good rapport with groups and individuals. It is through this dynamic and creative relationship that amazing things happen.
