Facilitative Leadership

Wednesday, September 27, 2023 (10:00 AM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)


Facilitation has become an essential skill for leaders seeking to change lives, systems, and societal practices. Facilitative leaders play a vital role in fostering collaboration, nurturing the capabilities and commitment of employees, colleagues, and stakeholders. Facilitative leaders “lead” by clearly communicating their vision and organizational boundaries while supporting their team’s efforts.

Facilitative leadership entails guiding individuals by presenting an inspiring vision of the positive transformations that their work can bring to the world. It also involves creating an environment that encourages every team member to engage enthusiastically and wholeheartedly in their work. Weaving together these two roles is not always easy.

In this workshop, we will delve into the qualities, values, and benefits of facilitative leadership. We will explore its relevance in our ever-evolving workplaces, considering whether and how this leadership style supports leaders during times of continuous change and complexity. Participants will discuss content in small and large groups and apply it in real time to their own situations.

Offered by our partner, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits
