My purpose as a facilitator is to work with groups and teams to help increase their effectiveness. This work has involved scenarios including decision-making, negotiations and working to improve difficult relationships.
In my experience, meetings are increasingly a source of frustration within organisations (too long, irrelevant, unclear outcomes…) so I also work with teams to demonstrate and model how they can effectively chair and facilitate meetings.
I work hard to create a Thinking Environment® when working with teams. If you would like to learn more about Thinking Environments, I would highly recommend reading Nancy Kline’s Time to Think.
