Meeting Facilitation Techniques
As a very experienced meeting facilitator Craig has a great deal to offer those who want to learn meeting facilitation techniques.
Craig runs this seminar like a meeting: encouraging participation, demonstrating techniques, and bringing the group to their own conclusions!
Craig asks participants to identify their most challenging meeting facilitation situations and then actually demonstrates how to address them. In addition, Craig explains what he sees as the four essential functions of meeting facilitation.
Objectives, Agenda, Ground Rules
Facilitation is an attitude of empowerment
Key Characteristics of Facilitators
Reflect the group as a whole
Move the group forward
We begin by reviewing many techniques in each of the above categories, then via multi-voting we identify those that we most want to learn about, then we focus on how to do a few techniques of greatest interest. Craig actually takes time to demonstrate specific techniques.
