Facilitation that Works - 2 days


Siva Supathaweewat Testimonial 935
Overview Details

Revolutionize your meetings and the people who attend them...

Powerful meetings aren’t just about getting the work done or making sure everyone gets to talk. The best meetings provide structure and efficiency without sacrificing human connection.

If the meetings in your organization are universally despised, that’s probably because the facilitators simply don’t have the skills. Instead of sitting through boring, stifling meetings, you and your colleagues can learn solid techniques for energizing people, getting buy-in and achieving results.

Rather than watching people constantly check their phones, you can discover how to lead meetings where participants fully engage and collaborate. Your meetings can bring out the best in people and produce extraordinary outcomes.

Excellent facilitators do more than manage meetings. They support participants to develop their facilitation skills so that in turn, they can lead their own meetings which transforms the organization. Vital creativity is released and people are liberated to build the capacity of the organization.
