Free "Webinar" on Facilitation Secrets

Leadership Strategies, Inc. (www.leadstrat.com) invites you to join them at 12pm eastern (and then again at 12pm pacific) on May 15 for a free lunchtime “Webinar” entitled An Introduction to Facilitating Groups: The Secrets of Facilitation.

From their mailing…

Your executive team will be holding a two-day, off-site planning meeting and your boss has just asked you to facilitate the session. Now you lead pretty good meetings and have decent presentation skills, but facilitation is a new skill and you have a lot of questions. What do you do to prepare? How do you get them engaged right from the beginning? What process do you take them through? How do you keep them focused on the topic? What do you do if someone goes dysfunctional? What if there is a major disagreement that you can’t get them through? How do you make sure they get the results they are looking for?

In this 90-minute webinar, Richard Smith, Principal with Leadership Strategies, Inc. and former consultant with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture), will provide you an overview of the Leadership Strategies facilitation approach and share with you over a dozen tools and techniques that you can use right away. Whether you facilitate focus groups, executive sessions, community gatherings or task forces doing strategy development, issue resolution, requirements analysis, process improvement, or simply action planning, this webinar will give you a comprehensive approach for working with groups.
