    Facilitation has been described as having three basic principles:

    1.A facilitator guides people through a process together, but is not the seat of wisdom and knowledge.
    2.Facilitation focuses on HOW people participate in the process of learning, not just on WHAT gets achieved.
    3.A facilitator should remain neutral and never take sides.


    What are your views on the importance of Axner’s three principles?
    In your work as a facilitator what  principles do you follow?

    One thing I always think is if you engage people and get them to reflect and share ther reflections, you have 50% of people at any moment talking – when I am talking then only one person is talking.  Going along with this is never tell one of your own stories, experiences or anecdotes. Means you are using up someone elses time. Through reflection and discussion, have as many people contributing as possible.
