In this episode, your coaches discuss meeting facilitation. Sylvia from Santa Fe asks: “My brother who works in an entrepreneurial environment told me his company recently conducted a ‘Now what?’ workshop to brainstorm the key areas that will change for them. If you were asked by our company to facilitate that conversation, what would you do?”
Tom, the great facilitator, tackles this first. He pulls in the Liberating Structures resource and discusses the power of virtual breakout rooms.
Sonia focuses on pulling the right content out of the participants with addressing the “Now what” with Where? What? And why? What has changed and what is going to be different moving forward?
Kimberly starts with the basic requirements for the successful facilitation of a meeting with establishing ground rules, no wrong answers, psychological safety, and making sure all have a chance to voice their opinion.
