Event description


"I attended your webinar training on how to turn useless meetings into effective collaboration and LOVED it! Your webinar was hands down one of the most valuable webinars I have attended to date!"
- Heather - Senior Director Product Management

Modern companies thrive on collaboration - particularly in tech. It is a pivotal aspect of knowledge work - especially at scale. Great collaboration should be constructive and engaging but it should also be mindful of the needs of individuals to focus. Most organizations bias towards collaboration via discussion; a fact that leads to the creation of a lot of meetings. Sometimes, these meetings are simply framed as “I know we need to discuss this thing” and the design and planning don’t go much further than that. This webinar is about getting people to think more deeply about the value of gathering groups together and how to make best use of their time.

This workshop also has a free handout/worksheet containing the instructions for how to formulate powerful opening questions for such gatherings.

Who is this webinar for:

  • Anyone who leads meetings - particularly those who have not had the benefit of dedicated facilitation support while doing so

  • Anyone who attends a lot of meetings and wants to be more knowledgeable about and model best practices

  • Anyone who is responsible for a large organization and is concerned about collaboration efficiency .

What will the audience walk-away with:

  • An understanding of the core of what it means to be a facilitator

  • A trusted framework for designing & planning meetings

  • Key things to think about when motivating your organization to convene more effective meetings

  • The ability to design powerful opening questions for meetings, strategy sessions, away-days, leadership gatherings etc.

  • A discount for the PeopleStorming online facilitation courses
