Take part in the most comprehensive survey of facilitators and facilitation to date.
Together, let’s build a better understanding of the world of facilitation!
How do facilitators work? How is facilitation evolving? What tools and resources do expert facilitators use?
Facilitation is workplace superskill, essential to unlocking collaboration and effective teamwork. Effective facilitators are increasingly in demand, but who are they? What are their challenges? How has facilitation changed in 2023 and what might it look like in the future?
Time to reveal the real State of Facilitation!
Last year we produced the first of it’s kind The State of Facilitation Report with more than 1100 responses and insights from 7 experts. Our intention is to continue hold up this mirror to the facilitation community, sparking reflections and conversations about where we are at and where we want to go next. We hope you will join us.
TAKES AROUND 20 MINUTES TO COMPLETE
We want to capture a comprehensive picture of facilitation, but we understand there are things you may not wish to disclose. Most of the questions in this survey are optional and you can skip them if you wish. Answering all the questions should take around 20 minutes.
YOUR RESPONSES ARE ANONYMOUS
We do not ask for any sensitive personally identifiable information in this survey. The demographic information we do ask about will only be used in aggregate form to ensure no indirect identification is possible. Irrespective of filling in the survey, you may provide your email address on this website to get notified about the final survey report. In such a case your email address will not be linked to the survey data in any way and it will be used strictly for communicating survey results.
We believe a complete understanding of who is practicing facilitation is imperative to advancing conversations around diversity, inclusion and equity. We ask for information such as age, race, gender identity and employment status.
HOW THE DATA YOU PROVIDE WILL BE USED
The information you provide will be used to create the next edition of the State of Facilitation report. This will be free and publicly available. No identifying information will be included and your responses will be anonymous
SPACE FOR FEEDBACK
The State of Facilitation is an initiative from SessionLab – A better way to design workshops.
Our main goal with this survey is to better understand the profession of facilitation going into 2024. Every completed response will help us to create a truly representative State of Facilitation report!

Check out the 2023 report to find aggregated results from the survey, divided into 7 sections covering everything from demographics and employment, to challenges and tools.
You’ll also find a collection of key takeaways, information and insightful commentary by workshop design and delivery experts from around the world and see why they think that facilitation is everywhere and yet it hasn’t reached the recognition it needs.
