Facilitation Skills: Lead Group Discussions

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” – Stephen R Covey

Are your meetings and group discussions a waste of time? Do you need to learn to manage your meetings more effectively?

Meetings and group discussions are great opportunities to make decisions and discuss ideas and solutions for innovation and challenges.

So why do so many people dread meetings? The honest answer is that most are badly organized and chaired, overrun and decisions are not made.

As businesses adapt to more people working from home, the need for effective discussion facilitation has been a priority as this is a skill most people chairing or hosting a meeting need to develop. Most participants feel that these meetings are unproductive as they are unstructured, people are multi-tasking and not engaged.
