Course description

The Facilitative Chair

The Facilitative Chair

Many Committee Chairs step into the role with no formal training around how to effectively lead meetings. Yet, in order to support good governance and achieve mandates, it is so important for Chairs to understand their role as meeting leader, how to actively engage the members and how to be more collaborative in their decision-making discussions. The good news it that there are tried and true practices for leading effective, collaborative meetings. This workshop therefore provides highly practical tips and techniques that can be applied in Chair’s very next meeting.

Whether participants are new to facilitation or have years of experience, this workshop provides a unique opportunity to align your Chairs and staff on a standard approach to collaborative Committee meetings. Learn essential skills from a certified, master facilitator who has taught meeting facilitation skills for years. Experience a dynamic and totally interactive learning environment.
