How a Facilitated Session Works

Our goal in a facilitated meeting is to create an open forum in which the stakeholders will be able to:

1. Identify the present state: Where are we now?
This will include identifying individual and organizational values, needs, issues, and concerns, along with any relevant drivers for change and any current problems/challenges.

2. Identify the desired future state: Where do we want to be?
This will include the design and articulation of the stakeholders’ shared vision, goals and objectives.

3. Develop specific “next step” strategies: How will we achieve our goals and objectives?
This will include creating:

  • process maps,
  • communication matrices,
  • issue resolution strategies,
  • plans for on-going evaluation and follow-up,
  • …and, most importantly… the development of issue-specific, results-focused Action Plans which will clearly define:
    • What: the issue and action item,
    • Who: the individual responsible for follow-through, and
    • When: the time frame for completion.

In our facilitated sessions, we will support your team or organization in improving both the results they are achieving, and the relationships they are creating.
