Facilitation

Often a meeting set up to get a team aligned and motivated can appear straightforward but ends up causing disagreements and emotional outbursts. Sometimes the meetings just cause boredom, where more of the attendees complete work on their smart phones than contribute to the meeting itself.

Too many meetings are just vehicles for presenting Powerpoint after dense Powerpoint to a sleeping audience.

How we can help you:

We understand the dynamics of engaging and involving people in meetings so that agreements become lasting, where disparate views can become aligned and where pragmatic plans gain traction.

Initial discussions with the meeting sponsor help to determine the style of facilitation to use. We might pre-meet a number of the participants to help build a better understanding of the emotions and issues at stake.

We then build an agenda in collaboration with the sponsor and manage the facilitation of the meeting directly – working towards emotional engagement and involvement of the key stakeholders.

"Alan's coaching helped me reach that next level in general management which I would never have reached alone. I was able to understand the role better and broaden and deepen my skills. This allowed me to consciously focus my interactions with the team, ensuring that everyone had clear objectives and an awareness of what great performance would look like. It also helped me with 'working with the CEO', learning to see the world through a CEO's eyes, which positively influenced my own career progression."

"Effective and trustful collaboration between people with different cultural and functional backgrounds is a key factor to achieve high quality and innovative results within an organisation and with its external partners. Alan's trainings and coaching bring the underlying team patterns to light and open ways to turn differences into strengths. I still profit from this knowledge and tools in my day-to-day work with colleagues or when leading multifunctional teams."
