A KivaQ facilitator is a work wellbeing expert, who facilitates the workshop and assists the team in focusing their resources on reaching their objectives. The facilitator acts as an external member of the team and a neutral adviser. The facilitator’s task is not to give ready solutions and answers, because every work team is unique and the best knowledge stems from inside the team deciding which solutions work and which do not work.
