Why Hire Jordan as your Meeting Facilitator?
My expertise is in the interplay between strategic decision making and emotional-relational dynamics. As a facilitator, consultant and coach, I can seamlessly toggle between the practicalities of addressing business problem, while also guiding teams to understand, unpack and overcome the underlying human dynamics.
This approach makes me an excellent professional facilitator. I am highly competent in my ability to keep groups focused on outcomes and meeting goals, without getting lost int he weeds. At the same time, I ensure that essential conversations are addressed carefully and competently, in order to deliver the most efficient process and arrive upon the most desirable outcome.
In the past, I have worked with groups across a wide variety of issues, including:
- Navigating unexpected change
- Succession planning
- Innovative thinking & strategic planning
- Conflict resolution
- Addressing complex emotional issues within organizations
Understanding the Meeting Facilitation Process
Every facilitation engagement unfolds a little differently.
Generally, I begin with a needs assessment/Discovery. Often this includes speaking 1-on-1 with some or all of the meeting participants in order to understand various perspectives, as well as any potential misalignments. I often complete this initial stage with a summary document that is reviewed by all participants.
Based on this assessment, I work with leadership to define achievable outcomes and to recommend a meeting agenda for the facilitated session.
During the session itself, I draw from my deep toolbox of facilitation techniques and frameworks to ensure that the desired goals are achieved. In session, I am a focused and playful presence who relies on my high emotional IQ to bring all issues onto the table.
After a session, I often meet with leadership to conduct a retrospective and help envision potential next steps.
