Course description

Facilitator’s Design Symposium

Facilitator’s Design Symposium

As a facilitator, you own the meeting process design - series of deliberately sequenced activities intended to lead toa targeted set of outcomes. Yet the most challenging skill for a developing facilitator is learning which process tools or activities to use to create a natural flow to the dialogue, build trust and fully leverage the expertise in the room.

In this workshop, participants will explore the critical elements of great meeting design and expand their meeting toolkit by learning and working with highly engaging, proven meeting tools and techniques. Based on class needs, we will delve into problem solving, consultative feedback, ideation or decision-making processes that can be applied in your very next meeting.
