Get the most from your planning sessions and meetings.
Meetings and planning sessions can be costly and challenging. Staff members block their schedules for the meeting, and invest additional time in preparation. Staying focused and productive can be difficult. Each participant has key information and insights which need to be expressed. Concerns need to be raised, and innovative thinking encouraged. Open discussion is critical, but straying off-topic can be deadly.
An internal coordinator or facilitator can be in a difficult position. They have their own thoughts, ideas and concerns to raise, but can lose focus, when faced with the task of running the meeting. Moreover, even if they are not a stakeholder in the discussion, participants may feel that the internal facilitator has a corporate or individual agenda they are promoting.
