About this talk

Have you ever experienced meeting creep, where poorly run discussions lead to more meetings, leaving you in collaboration chaos? In fact, the Harvard Business Review notes that 71% of senior managers say meetings are unproductive. People experience an overload of meetings, employees describe meetings as “a time suck,” and many employees admit that they use meeting time to do other work.

This is particularly relevant if you’re a digital leader because ‘leaders consistently rate their own meetings very favourably—and much more positively than attendees do.’ If you’re a leader aiming to start a new programme, align on strategy, or tackle a sticky problem, then a well-structured session with a designated facilitator will help your group work better and faster.

In this session we’ll cover facilitation basics, with tips and techniques that will have you facilitating your next session - whether online or in person - like a pro. You’ll learn about using:

4 core principles, including sequencing and visualising discussions

1 key framework for session flow

5 essential exercises that will improve any meeting

Together these will help you successfully guide participants to decisions and results.
