Why all managers need to be able to facilitate workshops and meetings effectively

An overwhelming amount of literature and facts substantiate why managers adopt facilitative styles in progressive, synergistic organisations. The Snap Tech summary of these findings is simple.

What Evidence says about Synergy

Laughlin et al found that groups of three, four, and five outperformed the best individuals. They attributed this performance to the ability of people to work together to generate and adopt correct responses, reject mistaken responses, and effectively process information. (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Vol. 90, No. 4)

Management Science Research shows that for top management teams, groups that debate issues and which are diverse make decisions that are more comprehensive and which even help the bottom line in terms of profitability and sales. (T. Simons et al: 1999)

Who Should Facilitate?

“A person who is acceptable to all group members, substantively neutral, and has no decision-making authority who helps a group improve the way it identifies and solves problems and makes decisions.”
Roger M. Schwarz

You, the Acceptable Synergy Machine

Snap Tech understands that the ability to inspire buy-in and commitment can sometimes take a knock, often derailing sincere efforts at collaboration.

That’s why Strategic Facilitation for Power Meetings and Workplace Interventions attracts both experienced and emerging leaders.

Don’t wait for something momentous to happen before you emerge as a leader who stands out as an effective facilitator. Join our programme and learn how to apply these skills and emancipate talent within your organisation.

We will support your development in being a synergy machine, adept at harnessing collaborations.

Who are You?

At Snap Tech we believe that the only barrier to your progress is your will.

What you want to achieve is more important to us than who you currently are. If you have a goal  to improve your skills and fall in line with international leadership trends, we have your back!

You’ll be in great company on our courses as they are supported by change agents, motivators, consultants, Project managers, IT managers, specialists and general managers, plus those on the front line of production and service delivery.

What is facilitation good for?

Everything, right?!

But to be pedantic and win your participation, here’s a short list of pain points that require dynamic facilitation:

  • Effective goal setting 
  • Strategic and general planning
  • Risk management
  • Problem solving
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • New ideas / products
  • Productive team meetings
