Facilitative strategies transform passive participants into inspired change agents. At first, the idea of empowerment may intimidate and overwhelm team members. Thus, leaders must consider creative and sensitive strategies for facilitating empowerment that reassure, motivate, and engage all involved.
Facilitative leadership is about engaging others. We live in a world today that relies heavily on sharing knowledge and the exchange of ideas to drive our efforts. Successful person-directed care depends on leadership’s ability to leverage each person’s individual strengths in developing a shared organizational vision. This involves knowing how to ask the right questions and creating an organizational culture that welcomes the ideas and perspectives of all stakeholders.
