Course description

Facilitating Meetings with Ease

Facilitating Meetings with Ease

A well-run meeting creates alignment, clarity and motivates a group to action. Ineffective meetings lead to frustration, wasted resources and negatively impacts employee engagement. With so many organizations recognizing the prohibitive cost of unproductive meetings, it is no wonder that meeting facilitation has become a core management skill for anyone who must help groups to work collaboratively to achieve critical outcomes.

Facilitating Meetings with Ease is by far our most popular leadership fundamentals workshop. In this highly interactive workshop, we equip learners with the tools, techniques and templates needed to lead any outcomes-driven conversation. Whether you’re new to facilitation or have years of experience, this workshop provides a unique opportunity to enhance your mastery of any group situation.
