Meeting & Facilitation Skills Training

Our meeting facilitation training helps business people lead and contribute to meetings that get business done. Each of the workshops listed below is built on the notion that all meetings are Orderly Conversations. That means that they need to be planned and facilitated. It also means that everyone participating in the meeting needs to feel comfortable contributing to the conversation.

Face-to-Face, Virtual, and now … Hybrid

We define Hybrid Communication as a meeting or presentation attended in various ways. Some participants may be in a meeting room; others may be logging in virtually; still others may be calling in on a phone. Hybrid meetings present substantial challenges for everyone. We address those challenges head-on and make sure that our workshop attendees understand their responsibility to engage everyone.

Sometimes meetings are routine. At other times they are high-stakes pressure cooker interactions. Regardless of the situation, meeting facilitators must create the conditions for a fruitful conversation and manage that conversation so that business moves forward. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, telling better stories, or gaining alignment—all of our meeting facilitation training options are designed to help people be more comfortable, effective, and confident facilitators.

Meetings Must be Efficient Because Meetings are Expensive

We understand how expensive inefficient meetings are, both in terms of the money and time they squander and the goodwill they slowly chip away. We understand that successful teams not only work together efficiently but also enjoy working together. That’s why we help people be better meeting leaders AND better meeting attendees.

Meetings Require Trust

Meeting attendees need to trust the facilitator to respect their time and contributions. Meeting facilitators need to trust attendees to bring their full attention and energy to every meeting. Our training is designed to make sure that happens. When meetings are effective, business gets done.
