Onsite Meeting Facilitation Services


The fact is, many meetings are poorly designed and badly run. Brainpower is left untapped, precious time is squandered, opportunities are missed, and money is often wasted. Organizations like the National Park Service, IBM and NRG Oncology have turned to Guided Insights when they need to make sure that their meetings harness the best thinking from diverse perspectives, achieve desired outcomes more quickly, and leave everyone feeling that their time was respected.

Here are some of the guidelines we go by when we design and facilitate productive meetings that our clients rave about:

  • People become engaged only when they have meaningful opportunities to interact
  • All voices are heard in the way most comfortable for them
  • Agendas should be realistic and created to support clearly-stated goals
  • Participants can only contribute successfully if they know what’s expected of them
  • Disagreement and debate often produce the best ideas
  • Participants share responsibility for creating and living by shared norms
