Course description

Get the Most out of Meetings with Facilitating Forward: Guiding Others Toward Results

Leaders, team members, consultants, and others within organizations may at times be called on to meet with a group and help them think and work together to solve a problem or reach an agreement or decision. Leadership skills in these situations do not always come naturally to people, but they are necessary to get the most possible out of a meeting.

That’s why Barnes & Conti Associates developed Facilitating Forward™. This program aims to develop skills in facilitating meetings for project managers and other leaders who need results when they have a team together. Participants will learn fundamental facilitation skills in observation, communication, and intervention. They will have the opportunity to gain useful insights, practice learned group process tools and techniques, and learn when and how to move between being a leader and being a facilitator. These skills will be useful for both virtual and in person meetings.
