Facilitation

Members of our team are skilled facilitators and use a diverse range of processes to encourage full participation. Our facilitation methods cater for the most rich and complex environments, ensuring maximum involvement and commitment of all participants. We elicit the collective knowledge from groups using collaborative and outcome focused approaches. We work in close consultation to ensure the design of our work creates opportunities for innovation involving all stakeholders; we explore complex questions encouraging full participation, embracing individual contributions and developing consensus based decisions. We support schools to have the conversations that matter, to create a common purpose and to make wise decisions using Deep Democracy, Storytelling and a range of traditional and innovative facilitation methods.

School Review

Synergistiq has Department of Education and Training (DET) accredited School Reviewers who are available to conduct Peer Reviews and Priority Reviews, and to offer Intervention Services. In addition, we can provide assistance to complete school self-evaluations and implement strategic plans, as well as individual professional support.

360 Leadership Profile

We offer tools, methodology, and support for deepening the conversation with, and between, leaders. We provide the only competency based 360° profile that measures two primary leadership domains — Creative leadership competencies and Reactive tendencies. Information is integrated so key opportunities for development are optimised. Most assessments measure only competencies. We support you to look at what you are doing, why you are doing it, and what actions you can take to develop your leadership to a higher level. We can support individuals and or teams to undertake this exploration to provide clearer and more cohesive decisions.
