Talk

Better Meeting Facilitation, Better Culture

You make the world better by designing great user experiences. You want to spend more time creating that world and less time explaining the basics, defending your choices, and selling the best approaches in meetings. But in meetings is where you find yourself, and it feels like they often introduce friction, ambiguity, and drag. You can make the change you want to see in your team and your company by attacking meetings as a design problem. By integrating human-centred design and outcomes based thinking into our approach to facilitation, we can start to recognise our own biases, become better facilitators, and run the better meeting experiences that we, and our organisations, deserve.

Facilitation
Meeting Planning
Measuring Meeting Impact

What exercises will be done?
Meeting Outcome Mapping
Facilitation Style Analysis
Cultural Impact Mapping

What you will take away from the workshop
How to build facilitation skills in themselves and in their teams that will lead to more meaningful, measurable meetings.
