It’s a simple fact, that many offsites or workshops tend to have an abundance of verbal discussion but fail to achieve the results or objectives set for the session.
This typically occurs because of a lack of structure, effective moderation and because some of the group will dominate the discussion whilst others will be reluctant to share their ideas and thoughts openly.
Our Power Facilitation process offers some key advantages in this area ...
Real success and innovation comes from harnessing power and planning with people and not over them. Truly effective facilitators know how to efficiently manage the environment, content, process and people in a meeting to stimulate the meaningful discussion and sharing of ideas needed to ensure a successful outcome.
Our skilled facilitators use the latest technology, tools and processes in group facilitation techniques to harness the maximum buy-in, contribution, innovation and synergy from every group in the shortest possible time.
Because all group members actively participate simultaneously, there is greater speed, momentum and responsibility for achieving the outcome.
This ensures your time and money is well spent and your people walk away with the specified outcome, clarity and buy-in necessary to implement the agreed action plan.
Key Benefits, we will ...
Our approach and system is based on ‘visual mapping’, ‘participative planning’ and the ‘moderation method’ for interactive group work. We ensure a creative, yet structured visual dialogue process. Our hardware includes the ‘Think PodTM’ and the ‘Neuland Moderation Boards’.
Our stationery includes a selection of colourful cards in different shapes and sizes with specifically assigned purposes. Cards are repositionable for flexible review and re-ordering or prioritising of key points, issues, ideas and actions.
All tools used support and enhance the art and practice of staff engagement, interactive learning, professional facilitation, visualisation, team building and organisational development.
Our approach is high energy, interactive and fun.
Facilitated workshops can be from 2 hours to 3 days or more depending on your needs and objectives.
Let’s review your needs and plan a Power Facilitation session with your team or selected stakeholders.
This will allow you to experience this unique process and achieve a significant outcome or desired result for your group.
The power facilitation process enabled us to run successful, insightful focus groups for a market research project. The facilitation activities, techniques, and tactics allowed us to gain valuable insight and information.
