Collaboration is the key tool used in skilled facilitation. Business consultants often teach and share expertise, deliver solutions based on their assessments, recommend activities as well as execute on business activities. Alchemy does this kind of consulting and coaching.
Facilitators work with their clients to co-create the solutions that will get championed and delivered. In the very best of scenarios, consulting and facilitation work hand in hand to help accelerate processes and results for clients- this is facilitation.
