Facilitation

Facilitation

“In meetings, when all is said and done, more is said than done.”     

We’ve all been in high-stakes meetings which were poorly managed.  You may have the best and brightest minds in the industry, but it is often difficult for an internal employee to facilitate effectively while also actively contributing in a meeting.  This is especially true if it’s an emotionally-charged meeting.

A skilled, professional facilitator has one powerful advantage in most group situations—because the facilitator has no internal emotional involvement, he or she can focus on helping the group achieve its desired outcomes.  A skilled facilitator can save you thousands by guiding the group directly toward achieving the meeting goals, resulting in a highly productive, targeted meeting.

We work with each client as a partner to design a participative structure and flexible strategy to help you achieve successful results.

The External Facilitator’s Role

We can help you:

  • Clearly define the purpose and goals of the meeting
  • Custom design the meeting with a dynamic combination of presentation, engagement, participation, and group discussion
  • Facilitate the meeting so all attendees can participate fully and be productive
  • Design a follow-up plan to ensure accountability and follow up on decisions and goals made during the meeting
