Effective meeting facilitation is a process of guiding participants through a meeting to achieve stated objectives. An effective facilitator:
  • Thinks through and manages the meeting objectives, processes, and group dynamics of participants
  • Creates buy-ins from the group
  • Encourages all members of a group to participate, draws out ideas and knowledge from different members
  • Enables participants to offer their best ideas and make decisions with commitment and enthusiasm
Here are 10 keys to successful facilitation and competencies you should look for when you hire a professional facilitator: 1. Understand your audience. Find out more about your audience before facilitating a meeting or workshop. Try to understand their concerns and interests in the topic by sending them a proposed agenda or a short pre-meeting questionnaire. Doing so will help participants feel more included and create a more positive atmosphere for the meeting. In addition, a benefit to understanding your audience will enable you to discover more useful discussions than the one you had planned.

One of the characteristics of a best employer is to listen to employee input regularly and to solicit employee feedback before making any major changes. Likewise, before implementing major rezoning changes to a community, you want to get input from your community stakeholders such as the residents and businesses. San Francisco’s Japantown did just that before implementing a rezoning strategic plan. A team of ASTD Golden Gate Chapter's Community Outreach Program (COP) volunteers designed and facilitated the first of three large-scale community meetings in Japantown last Wednesday. The City's Planning Department and the Japantown Organizing Committee had developed a set of recommendations for revitalizing Japantown. This meeting was aimed at getting the community’s feedback and input to these recommendations.
