Session” discussion on "Master the Art of Facilitation and Increase
Your Value to Clients” 7:30 to 9:30 AM Friday, March 15, 2013, at the Plymouth Country Club, 888 Plymouth Road, Plymouth
Meeting, PA 19462. This topic will be presented by Bruce Nilson,
a Certified Management Consultant with more than 25 years of experience providing
strategy and leadership development services to management teams at all levels.
consulting engagements often depend on how well we can gather good information
by facilitating group discussions with clients. How does a facilitator
lead an open discussion without losing control of the group? What can you
do when you have a bully in the group or someone who tries to hijack the
meeting with their own agenda? What are some ways to help the group reach real
consensus? Several facilitation techniques will be demonstrated during
this interactive session that can increase your confidence in leading groups
under various conditions, and increase your value and reputation with clients
as an effective team leader.
