As staff members, managers, leaders and volunteers, we all spend time in meetings. We recognize that a strong leader creates a meeting environment where team members have ownership and involvement in the process, trust each other and make good decisions. When we are called upon to be leaders, how can we better ensure that we will facilitate effective meetings?
Strengthening your meeting management and effective facilitation skills better enables you to effect change, move ideas forward, build stronger teams and demonstrate leadership. These are skills in high demand at all levels of an organization, in all sectors (public, private, nonprofit) and in professional as well as personal settings.
This workshop features Sue Bennett, Senior Leadership Director of Leadership Tomorrow, a program that cultivates, inspires, connects and engages an effective community of leaders. Prior to this, she was Senior Learning Manager at Philanthropy Northwest. Sue has worked for corporations, foundations and nonprofits, and as an independent consultant for over a decade. She founded and facilitated Parent Peer Groups for schools throughout the Seattle area for ten years. Sue has facilitated hundreds of meetings and believes that whether you have run a few or a thousand meetings, there are always new things to learn.
In this session, participants will:
- Understand the 5 facilitator roles
- Learn and/or review tools for effectively facilitating discussions and decision-making
- Feel more comfortable in the role of facilitator
