Facilitating more Effective Meetings – Getting More Done in Less Time
Want to improve the productivity and quality of your meetings by 20% or much more?
Our facilitation workshops help people understand the facilitator role better and give them many skills to achieve the goal of facilitation – to make things easier – for the groups they serve.
The Bottom Line?
Too many meetings last too long with too few results. The fastest way to improve the quality of meetings is to improve the quality of the facilitation. Think about the value gained by meetings that are 20% shorter and 20% more effective. Heightened facilitation skills routinely result in these kinds of productivity gains.
“I attended your 2-Day Flawless Facilitation class at TriHealth in Cincinnati Ohio. You already know from my evaluation how impressed I was with the class. I am writing to tell you that I have found the follow up emails helpful as well. It is so easy to walk away from a great seminar and never use the information. You follow up motivated me to apply me learnings from the class. It provided the extra discipline I needed in my busy life. Thanks for providing a wonderful educational opportunity for me Kevin.”
– Lisa Humphrey, Performance Consultant, TriHealth

How We Operate
While we have delivered many facilitation skills workshops of varying lengths, we prefer to work with you to design exactly what you need. Rather than getting a “canned” program, you get a workshop specifically tailored to your needs. We take the key skills and knowledge we know will make a difference, match that with the needs you have, then tailor the overall workshop to meet your specific needs.
Beyond our core content, exercises and practice sessions, we have a broad range of related skills and knowledge that can be used to supplement, and adjust the workshop to help it fit your organizations’ unique needs.
Because of our experience and approach, you aren’t paying for a new training design, but rather you get a customized product at a very reasonable investment.
What You Will Learn
While we customize the workshop to your needs, here are some sample learning objectives.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
