Group facilitation is an art form. The convergence of thought and leadership in a forum debate is an age old practice dating to the Ancient Greeks. The facilitation of group discussion, modeled on the Socratic Method of debate, contributes to a vision of community in an egalitarian context. Guided by an understanding of ethical community, democratic knowledge sharing commences with an apt leader. While group participants may present basic challenges; formative critical thinking emerges.
The democratic model of debate informs decision making, and facilitative leadership. Mindful discussion is the source of empowerment for individuals participating in group dialogue. According to 20th
century Psychologist, Abraham Maslow, the emergence of a ‘civis’, whereby ethics is part of a framework of Naturalism, and human participation (i.e. Socratic Debate), laid the foundations for the proliferation of cognitive knowledge and technical productivity in the leadership of organizations, professional associations, and government.
