In most organizations, people spend a lot of their time in meetings. To get the value for the time and effort spent in these meetings, they need to be effective, engaging and results oriented. Optimally, they tap into the creativity and collective genius and potential of the people present.
Meetings can be likened to the breath and circulatory system of an organization. Without them, effective communication and creativity begins to collapse and the organization loses its aliveness. The same can be said for ineffective meetings which stifle collaboration and the ability of participants to solve complex problems and achieve your goals.
There are many things to pay attention to in ensuring effective group facilitation. We deliver those things and then go beyond them — recognizing the unseen world of intuitive knowledge, including the collective consciousness, as valuable assets for any organization to work from. Our holistic, whole-person, whole-system approach has far-reaching benefits which includes getting results and building the cultural capacity to thrive with change.
We have chosen theories and frameworks that we have found to work in enabling consistent learning results in adults and what many who work with us say it is like "magic." Its usefulness is that it works, has a good track record, is transferable to any situation, and it is duplicable and simple.
Meetings of any kind are useful only if learning is taking place. Our promise to you is that through this way of group facilitation, learning is enhanced, potential is tapped into that has lain dormant, and in the end, it takes less time and time is used more effectively. The group benefits and achieves outcomes, usually beyond their expectations.
