Facilitating Difficult Meetings: How to Achieve Consensus and Collaboration

Meetings are an important tool for sharing information, gathering ideas and making decisions, but sometimes they are less than effective and even stressful. Difficulties can arise because of complex problems to solve, stakeholders with different priorities, and personality conflicts. Learn how to act as a meeting facilitator to resolve problems, achieve consensus and manage personalities.

This course can be applied to the Business Communication Certificate.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes

Make sure your meetings are productive by –

  • Learning helpful decision-making strategies that fit your situation
  • Gaining insights into different personalities and how to take advantage of each person’s unique perspective
  • Discovering tips for creating a safe atmosphere that encourages everyone to share their ideas and yet allows people to disagree
  • Ensuring quality communication by setting ground rules and encouraging good listening skills

Meetings may not always be easy, but they should always be productive, moving the group forward towards their ultimate goal in the time needed.
