Effective facilitation

Did you know that you are judged by your effectiveness as a leader on how well you run your meetings? The key to a successful group session is having an effective facilitator who can organize the meeting and skillfully guide the team towards achieving their goals.

Facilitation is often overlooked, but we all know that exceptional leaders have mastered the art of facilitation.

We have all experienced meetings that are never-ending, have no purpose, or never reach a consensus.  Even worse, meetings where the “elephant in the room” is never addressed. It is estimated that 30 billion dollars are spent in the United States annually on unproductive or poorly run meetings. For any meeting to be effective, it must have a skillful facilitator.

This course teaches the most effective group collaboration skills to ensure your group sessions are focused and produce value. This course covers advanced facilitation, emotional intelligence, and cultural transformation topics that are guaranteed to positively affect the way you work.
