Facilitation: 12 Principles of Process Facilitation - Principle 6: Full Participation


This is Part 6 of the 12 Principles of Process Facilitation.

It is simply because More Participation, More Ideas can be Generated.

Only when people thinks there is Fairness and Everybody is of Similar Degree of Participation, they will then actively participate.
