TOPIC: February Chapter Meeting - Elicitation: Introduction to Facilitating Groups and Annual General Meeting (AGM)
PRESENTER: Holly Larson, Business Development Manager, Leadership Strategies
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
BAs must facilitate many meetings, achieve results, and report
to different levels of management accordingly.
At some point, even experienced facilitators find themselves standing
before groups whose dynamics are all over the board. Everyone is expressing an opinion, ideas are
flying at warp speed, emotions are high, disagreement is rampant, and some
people are shutting down while others are rebelling against the process.
Wouldn’t it be great to have the tools that
allow you to regain control and confidently lead the group to effective results
LEARN HOW TO:
- Prepare for a successful
- Gain the groups interest and
support from the start
- Get executives to transfer their
power to you
- Keep the group focused
- Handle dysfunctional behavior
- Guide groups to effective
- Reach consensus decisions
ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
As an experienced business development professional and meeting
facilitator, Holly Larson has communicated across business lines from field
sales and front line managers to mid-level management and operations to
executives at the VP and C-levels. She has helped organizations develop their
strategies as well as communicate their messages to end-users, internal
clients and to potential investors. By recognizing and acknowledging the
strengths and roles of everyone present, Holly is able to elicit the
information needed to get the best ideas and support needed to ensure success from
the projects she’s facilitating.
Holly has worked with ADP
National Account Services and Employer Services International, AMR Research
(now Gartner Research), Cardinal Health and Liberty Mutual, among others. Some
