Workshop & Meeting Facilitation
Enabling participants to make decisions and come together as a team
You've invited 12 executives to participate in an important planning session. For various reasons you asked one of your colleagues to run it.
The day arrives... the meeting takes place. Unfortunately, the outcome is not what you expected. Participants were unable to agree on the key issues. One nodded off in the morning session and a couple excused themselves right after lunch.
Perhaps an experienced facilitator would have been a good investment.
Our client was absolutely thrilled with the outcome of the meeting you facilitated. In fact they're still talking about it. It was a challenging situation, but you were more than up to it!"
– Brian Fox, Senior Vice President, OEB Enterprise Inc
Facilitation involves designing conversations that enable groups of people to exchange viewpoints and make informed decisions.
A well-designed and professionally facilitated session offers many benefits… from raising awareness and building consensus to empowering and motivating individuals and improving teamwork.
Over the last 20 years, we have facilitated 100s of meetings, workshops, and corporate retreats. Active listeners with a collaborative style, humour, and a buttoned-down process, we're told that we excel at engaging participants, breaking up logjams, and achieving desired outcomes.
Our approach to facilitation assignments typically involves 5 steps:
establishing specific, meaningful, and achievable outcomes,
if necessary, gathering information through online surveys and/or key informant interviews,
building an agenda to address specific needs and achieve desired outcomes,
facilitating the session or sessions, and
documenting and reviewing decisions made and actions to be taken.
