Facilitation of Meetings, Negotiations and Retreats
Let's face it. A lot of meetings are a waste of time: unclear objectives, monologues and sidetracked conversations leave participants stiffling yawns and glancing at their watches. Bringing in a skilled facilitator like Zena Zumeta has a lot of benefits. Not only can she help plan and keep the meeting on track, her facilitation frees your team to focus on the issues at hand and fully participate in the meeting.
The Facilitator's Role
- Assisting in planning meetings for maximum efficiency and effectiveness
- Moving the agenda along
- Running meetings smoothly and efficiently
- Acting as a neutral observer of the meeting
- Dealing with conflicts
Using a Facilitator Allows All Participants to
- Participate fully in the meeting, instead of trying to run the meeting and participate
- Participate equally in the meeting
- Follow jointly agreed-upon ground rules to protect participants during heated discussions
- Discuss difficult topics in a constructive manner
- Increase efficiency and effectiveness of meetings
