Facilitating Effective Meetings.jpg



Meetings have the potential to be inspiring! They provide a space where people come together for a common purpose – whether that's making decisions, exploring a shared problem or providing mutual support. Ideally, everyone leaves a meeting feeling heard, understood and positive about the group and any plans or decisions you have made.

However, most of us have experienced meetings that are less than ideal! They drag on and on, with tempers running high, people talking over each other and no decisions being made. Or maybe one person dominates the meeting, leaving everyone else to wonder why they even turned up.

Meetings are a critical part of working culture. Effective meetings save time and money. When meetings are facilitated well the attendees feel more empowered which increases their engagement and subsequent willingness to implement the action list.

Facilitation is about taking responsibility for making meetings as easy and effective as possible. In this workshop we explore the concept of facilitation and how it can help in creating positive and successful meetings.

This 1/2-day workshop will provide a list of tools and processes that can be used in different situations to get the required results. Participants will not only understand what is required of them in their role as a facilitator, they will also develop the core skills of facilitating.

Course Objectives:


This one day workshop develops great facilitators that can be utilized by businesses or organizations to add real value to meeting effectiveness.
