In The News Coaching Meeting Facilitation

Meeting Chairing/Facilitation

Joe is a highly energizing meeting Chair/Facilitator with decades of business leadership experience. Through business and facilitation skills acquired over years of practical experience, he creates an environment that drills deep into key areas and engages all participants in the development of the best strategic and tactical solutions.

Here is a quick overview of his a seven-step group meeting facilitation approach

1. It begins with an initial 15-minute phone meeting to determine your general needs.

2. If the decision is to move forward, the next step is a  90-minutes designed to help clearly define meeting goals

3. We then prepare a detailed facilitation meeting agenda draft. This is used to visualize the overall meeting plan in detail and enable us to work together to finalize the approach. At this time, we can also explore if we have all the right people invited as well as resources needed in the meeting room.

4. From the finalized detailed meeting agenda, we create the less detailed participants version of the agenda for release to meeting invitees.

5. As we facilitate the meeting/retreat, we work closely with you or your representative to adapt the approach as events unfold.  We keep the attendees focused, on time and on task.  If something important comes up that is not on the agenda we capture it in a parking lot.

6. After the meeting, we collect all documented action items and materials and provide them to you in a summary report.

7. After we send you the report, we schedule a 90-minute post-meeting debrief to go over the report and any go-forward suggestions.
