At times organizations find themselves faced with navigating emotionally charged topics in small group and large group settings. The Institute’s trained meeting facilitators can help your organization conduct productive and efficient meetings with multiple participants and/or multiple and complex issues. Our facilitators have a variety of backgrounds that include graduate degrees in law, education, social work and several are attorneys.
Our meeting facilitators can do the following:
- Propose and develop a meeting agenda prior to the meeting after talking with the meeting participants;
- Guide the meeting process so that each participant’s comments and viewpoints are heard and understood by the others;
- Help the meeting participants achieve consensus and closure;
- Assist the participants to develop an action plan to implement after the meeting.
A meeting facilitator does not offer content material to the meeting discussion. The facilitator guides the meeting process so that all viewpoints are heard and understood. The Institute’s facilitators are located throughout California and are accustomed to traveling to locations convenient and accessible for the meeting participants.
The Institute for Administrative Justice utilizes its trained attorneys and mediators to facilitate meetings.
