I found this article from Dan Rockwell, the @LeadershipFreak on twitter.


John Spence shares some great insight from his 15+ years of being a facilitator.


The list includes:

  1. The number one goal as a facilitator is to have a clear map for where you’re trying to get to by the end of the event.
  2. To be a… Guide on the Side – not a Sage on the Stage!
  3. Another thing that I’ve learned over the years is that I use a progression of: Delivering information at the beginning of the session (setting the stage, setting the context, getting everyone on the same page, creating a shared language – and shared ideas around where we are going for the day and what is most important)
  4. Lastly, I typically follow up all my facilitations with a two or three page “Management Memo”

I feel like the memo is often overlooked step in business practices. People take away all these actions items from meetings, don't know or remember (or aren't motivated) to actually do something about those items. And yet a common complaint in my past workplaces is that we have the same meeting over and over. Perhaps the "Management Memo" was the missing link? These are some good tips, thanks for sharing!
