We facilitate productive team meetings to ensure specific, desired outcomes

The role of the facilitator is to impartially direct the activities of a group meeting with a common purpose to ensure an efficient process. The facilitator does not have decision-making authority.

What Types of Issues or Processes Might Call for a Facilitator?

Typical facilitation engagement themes are:

  • Designing/redesigning organizational structures
  • Strategy development
  • Brainstorming
  • Problem solving
  • Addressing highly contentious group issues

What Are the Benefits of Using a Third-Party Facilitator?

An effective third-party facilitator will:

  • Collect, organize, and summarize data during and after the session(s)
  • Quickly diffuse challenging behaviors and sidetracking
  • Ensure all parties are heard and duly considered
  • Efficiently encourage options and resolutions
  • Gain commitment and buy-in
  • Identify next steps and accountabilities
  • Capture participants’ attention immediately, hold their interest, and maintain engagement
  • Keep participants focused on achieving the desired outcomes
  • Minimize anxiousness
