I work with clients to ensure that when busy people get together for meetings and retreats their time is well spent and they reach their goals.
I facilitate meetings of Boards of Directors, Departmental Teams, Strategic Planning Committees, and representatives from different institutions, foundations and public agencies. The meetings, or retreats, range from 2 hours to 2 days; some are planned as a series and other’s are one-time gatherings.
The work consists of significant preparation with participants to establish clear outcomes, to set the stage for consensus and anticipate areas of potential conflict, and to manage time, and expectations responsibly.
Frequently this work entails surveying participants, working with a group’s leadership committee to set an agenda and design a process that’s matched to the group’s needs and working style.
At the meetings my role is to make sure that all voices are heard, that conversations stay on track, the outcomes are achieved and that the participants are freed up to invest fully in the day’s discussion.
