    Meetings are integral to any organization. At their best, they are an effective means of planning, brainstorming, building relationships, and managing ideas. At their worst, meetings are a waste of time and effort. Effective facilitation skills can help ensure that your meetings, retreats, and planning sessions are worthwhile.

    This informative course will review key facilitation principles and how to apply them to your face-to-face meetings. Some of these concepts can also enhance your virtual meetings.  Association professionals who conduct meetings for staff colleagues, boards or committees, or volunteer groups will find this program especially helpful.

    Learn tips and techniques to make your meetings more productive and satisfying. Register now to examine these critical topics:

    • Understanding group facilitation: Explore roles and facilitation principles, separating process from content, and speaking or other presentation roles.
    • Laying the groundwork: Establish the meeting’s purpose and desired outcomes; select the right participants and set expectations; identify key topics; determine best participation processes; specify deliverables, roles, and logistics; and design the meeting around a results-based agenda.
    • Guiding your meeting: Open and close effectively, guide participation, handle disagreement, build consensus, and manage dysfunction and intervention.
