Understanding facilitation begins with an awareness of the difference between facilitating and leading. It has been said that leadership is something you do to a group, while facilitation is something you do with a group.
Although many leaders can (and should) be effective facilitators, the facilitator differs from a leader in that the former is cognisant about the use of power, authority, or control and places limitations on uses of it. A facilitator should be “a neutral mediator whose job is to provide information and accommodate the exchange of dialogue among participants”..
