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. Facilitators create the meeting culture. They are skilled at developing focused agendas, leading collaborative activities, remaining impartial, and keeping participants on task. They design better meeting systems. 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.
