The principle: all stakeholders are always part of the process, participative leadership becomes possible and tangible. Employees receive equal voice and clear responsibility. The facilitator ensures a common understanding of the task and the environment. Group processes are initiated and supported. The Facilitator has extensive method repertoire and a clear ethical and professional understanding.

You have to know what you want to get. But when you know that, let it take you. And if it seems to take you off the track, don’t hold back because that is instinctively where you want to be. And if you hold back and try to be always where you have been before, you will go dry. (Gertrude Stein)„
