Facilitation is the act of “making easy” the work of groups.

There is nothing natural about communicating in groups. With no one leading the process, even the most well-intentioned group can get sidetracked, have uneven participation, or get stuck.

As facilitator I am a neutral third party who creates and leads a group through a structured process for effective discussion and decision-making.  Often I’m also asked to produce a written record of the group’s work.

I have facilitated discussions for a broad spectrum of groups:

  • international conferences
  • nonprofit boards of directors
  • management teams
  • workplace teams
  • community meetings
  • study tours
  • coalitions and networks

My Process

I design the agenda or process in close collaboration with the client.

We develop the answers to these three key questions:

  • What results (product, organizational impact) do you want from this event?
  • Who are the stakeholders?  What are their needs and contributions?
  • How much time, energy and money do you choose to put into this process?

With these questions answered, I design and lead a process to deliver the desired results.
