Get the most out of your meetings.
As a facilitator, Kari shapes and guides the process of working together effectively. Kari’s focus is on the outcome of the meeting or planning session, with how the people in the meeting participate and interact, and also with the process. While achieving the goals and outcomes that everyone wants is important, Kari also works to make sure that the process is sound, that everyone is engaged, and that the experience is the best it can be for the participants.
As a meeting facilitator, Kari’s role is to:
- Understand the goals of the meeting and the organization
- Keep the group on the agenda and moving forward
- Involve everyone in the meeting, including drawing out the quiet participants and controlling the domineering ones
- Make sure that decisions are made democratically
