Personal Development – Facilitating with Ease to get the Win:Win Solution

Introduction

These days it is impossible to be part of a business or any organisation without attending meetings. They may be staff meetings, project planning groups, process improvement workshops or any other situation that requires a group of people to come together to share information, generate ideas, evaluate options, build consensus or take decisions.

 Excellent course – highly recommended!       Cathy Lavery

Something that many of them can have in common is the feeling of frustration and wasting people’s time and resources as well as not fully achieving the objectives that the meeting was set up for.

To get the most from your people, you need to know how to create buy-in, generate participation and empower people. It is impossible to build teams, consistently achieve consensus or run effective decision making meetings without facilitation skills. The good news is that these skills can be mastered by anyone.
