Virtual Facilitation: Applying the Facilitator’s Methodology from Anywhere
Virtual meetings are the norm today. Sure, you may know how to facilitate group meetings, but how are your virtual facilitation skills? Do you know how to use technology effectively to achieve maximum group results even when you’re not in the same room? How do you minimize the common challenges?
Facilitation skills are essential to keeping your group engaged in virtual meetings. Too often, participants face the glaring temptation to multi-task behind the scenes. Dysfunction may erupt and slow down the productivity of a group without your knowledge. Participants feel they are either limited or without structure, process, or tools necessary to conduct work and make critical decisions. How do you, as the meeting facilitator, rally the group to deliver results when you encounter these challenges?
In this webinar, learn how to adapt facilitation skills to the virtual environment. Discover critical components of virtual facilitation, how to overcome common dysfunctions in virtual meetings, and ways to accomplish full group participation – as if you’re in the same room.
