Facilitating Thoughts: What Essential Items Must You Have BEFORE Your Meetings And Discussions Begin To Make The Sessions Fruitful

As you run your meetings, it’s imperative that the members are focused unto the meeting itself. Today, at the second day of “WITs Facilitators’ Course”, we kept these in perspectives as we discussed on the tough issues and essential items to apply in meetings.

One of the areas I got every participant to look at are the moments before the actual beginning of the meeting and discussions. These moments set the pace for the entire flow of the sessions, hence they warrant careful considerations.

In order to have a meaningful and fruitful session as facilitator-leader, here are the items that you must consider before your meetings and discussions begin:

1. Set the frame work and agenda of the meeting so everyone knows where the meeting is heading.

2. Get everyone to arrive prepared with their relevant information before the meeting begins.

3. Lay out the ground rules of the meeting where everybody must agree and abide.
