Guidelines for a Facilitator
Group Facilitation is the art of guiding the group process towards the agreed objectives. A Facilitator guides the process and does not get involved in Content. A Facilitator intervenes to protect the group process and keep the group on track to fulfill its task. There is no recipe for a Facilitator to follow, and there is no one right way to facilitate a group. But here are some guidelines, techniques and tips that you may find useful (these guidelines include material from The Zen of Groups: A Handbook for People Meeting with a purpose).
Concrete Actions to Improve Job Satisfaction and Work Excitement
Different workplaces have different needs, but there are four basic steps any manager can take to kick-start job satisfaction: Conduct realistic job previews. As the name suggests, this involves presenting prospective employees with both positive and negative information about the job. This shows integrity. It also builds a sense of confidence and trust on the part of job applicants toward the hiring manager. Realistic job previews are also an effective tool for communicating general performance expectations, the nature of the work, and the conditions under which that work is to be performed.
