Facilitation and Business Meeting Skills

Thgere are many types of meetings and groups that require a degree of facilitation:

Meetings
away days
conferences
brainstorming sessions
impromptu get-togethers among staff
inter-departmental talks

These kinds of Facilitation situations are what most people encounter at work on an on-going basis.

And most of the time, they function very well, or at least, well enough.

However, there are some situations where having an outside, objective, facilitating eye is vital.

Facilitation is the thing that's needed to get people out of routine, to stop people time wasting and to get things moving forward.

If you need to take a fresh look at how your meetings work, facilitation is an essential option. 

Everyone in business has at some point in their working lives come out of a meeting feeling it was a big waste of time (unless of course, they used it to catch up on some much-needed sleep!). 

People get frustrated, bored, lazy or just plain cynical when meetings don't accomplish much and there's little to inspire or motivate.

Here are common reasons why sometimes unfacilitated meetings get bogged down or lose their way:

Old squabbles
Historic ways of doing things
Accepted lines of communication (or mis-communication, as the case may be)
Being too close to the action.

Facilitators, on the other hand, don't come laden with pre-conceived expectations, judgements or ancient history.

Facilitators have no vested interest, no axes to grind, no points to score.

Trained facilitators see and hear not only the obvious, but are tuned in to what else might be going on that isn't quite so apparent.

Facilitators are skilled in interpreting the difficulties, resolving conflict, cutting through time wasting and diversionary tactics and, most importantly, enabling people to reach agreements and develop new practises that will work.

In short: Facilitation.

So think about the more important and crucial meetings in your workplace where everyone keeps going 'round in circles, and then imagine what the clarity of facilitation might bring to proceedings.
