This session will enable both new and experienced meeting facilitators to:
- Handle problem participants.
- Encourage everyone to contribute his or her ideas.
- Use an agenda effectively.
- Keep groups on task.
- Become aware of the importance of paying attention to underlying "currents" of feeling.
This session encourages us to have the courage to be in charge of a meeting without being controlling, and to never again facilitate a gathering "in which minutes are kept, but hours are wasted".
