In this fun, fast-paced two day online workshop, you’ll learn how to facilitate large virtual meetings. Your instructors will lead you through various methods, teaching why and how they work.
You’ll get facilitation tips and tricks and learn how to incorporate these techniques into virtual meetings. You’ll end the day with a new way of looking at facilitating virtually and the confidence to approach it with renewed energy and optimism.
Whether you know it or not, you are probably a facilitator. Facilitators lead and guide teams through important gatherings (think: “lockdowns,” working sessions, strategic meetings, etc.) to achieve better outcomes. They are skilled at developing focused agendas, leading collaborative activities, remaining impartial, and keeping participants on task, even if the team is distributed. Even if you are not a professional facilitator, many of us have to play the role of facilitator at key moments in our day-to-day work. Here’s your chance to learn tools to do it more successfully.
