Transformative Facilitating Leadership

One of the most cutting-edge theories on the subject redefines leadership as a quality of the system and not a personal characteristic. From this approach, the role of traditional leadership changes and is divided into two separate functions: administrative management and enabling leadership, which creates the conditions so that adaptive leadership can emerge in a team or organization. The Fabrika Method develops this type of enabling leadership and divides it into its two main components: 1. Facilitate the conditions for collective wisdom to emerge from the integration of existing differences in the system, and 2. Accompany people in their development, learning and change processes.


Understand the value of diversity to generate innovation and collective wisdom, and learn to work with it, especially when it involves differences that touch on invisible privileges.
Learn tools and develop skills for facilitative leadership, capable of welcoming and integrating diversity, and transforming, accompanying people in their learning and change processes.
