For a team to realise its highest potential, the ability of its members to collaborate effectively is key. Staff meetings, project meetings, design meetings, planning and coordinating meetings are channels for teams to align, communicate, collaborate and resolve issues together. Yet, it’s all too common for staff to lament that “they have too many meetings to attend and not enough time to execute and do stuff”.
There has been a growing realization that we have to pay attention to the process elements of meetings if we want them to be effective. With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal, the core competency everybody needs. Managers and supervisors are often asked to facilitate rather than instruct or manage their meetings and training sessions.
How can you facilitate, rather than control, group decision-making and team interaction? This inspirational keynote has been created to introduce you to the mindset and fundamental process and skills that you can model to extract optimal outcomes from your meetings.
