Do You Know How to Engage Your Audience Effectively?

Creative and Engaging FacilitationCreative and Engaging Facilitation

There’s nothing worse than a meeting where no one participates — unless it’s a meeting
where one aggressive “meeting hog” takes over and won’t stop.

If you facilitate internal meetings, you know full participation is vital for the meeting to be productive, and for team members to leave feeling they’ve made an important contribution.

But sometimes it’s difficult to get attendees to participate … and even more difficult to
keep control of the meeting once they do.

How can you motivate open discussion and elicit relevant questions?

How do you ensure a genuine dialogue, where attendees’ contributions are heard?
