Facilitation: A leadership practice for the world today
BY: Andres Marquez-Lara
Now more than ever, leaders need the skills to facilitate difficult conversations that make ourselves and others more closely examine our roles in the spaces around us. We must ask ourselves: How do we grow as leaders to become aware of our blindspots? And for those of us who are white and privileged, how are unintentionally being complicit under systems oppressing Black people? And how do we use this awareness to facilitate the conditions needed to confront such systems, promote healing and allow ourselves and others to grow? Over the next few months, UFacilitate will be starting a new series examining the intersection of facilitation and leadership—and how we can harness this relationship to promote healing and growth.
Welcome to the UFacilitate Blog!
Here, we will be featuring thoughts and insights from our community of facilitators, leaders and change-makers.
Hope you enjoy!
