Several elements are critical in creating a successful meeting
Great meeting process
Helping groups bring their best individual and collective thinking to solving problems, creating strategy, and meeting their goals is what good design and facilitation can do. An agenda that includes good process and design elements can inspire creativity and participation. An outside facilitator is great when new energy is needed, when challenging topics are being addressed, when key decisions need to be made, or when you want to get more done in meetings.
Great design and facilitation not only helps to get the work done, they also help to create learning experiences for groups and organizations that actually change behaviors, increase capacity and create better results.
