Deepak Chopra on Facilitating Groups

Deepak Chopra recently wrote a useful article on leading groups. As a facilitator, I resonate with all his points. Here’s the abbreviated list for what the facilitator can do:

  1. Be optimistic
  2. Be appreciative
  3. Build trust
  4. Create a safe space
  5. Challenge the group
  6. Catalyze creativity
  7. Boost morale

Chopra goes on to say that feedback loops are important, and I agree, mostly because I arrived at the same conclusion through my studies in biomimicry. Overall, leading groups is about nurturing, challenging, and supporting them.
