For Government Agencies and Employees, it’s Business as (Un)usual

Conference rooms are empty.

Virtual meeting rooms are full.

Working together requires new skills and techniques.

Even in today’s virtual environment, we know you’re looking for ways to spend budget that will pay off long after the fiscal year ends.

We’ve got you covered:

Virtual Meeting Management

Bad virtual meetings are more than just an annoyance.

Bad meetings waste valuable resources including each individual’s time – especially when they occur in a virtual environment. They often result in bad decisions that take even more resources to realize and rectify. Switching gears to have masterful virtual meetings instead of bad ones can be a difficult process. We know that you have projects to get done this fiscal year. Good online meetings are critical to achieving your goals and completing your projects on time and within budget.

We have the expertise to help revolutionize the way you hold online meetings. Masterful virtual meetings are results-oriented meetings that are properly prepared for and skillfully executed. Masterful virtual meetings:

  • Start on time.
  • Have a clear purpose.
  • Have the right people present.
  • Offer all of the information participants need.
  • Have a carefully planned and executed agenda.
  • Encourage passionate discussion that results in excellent decisions.
  • Encourage genuine engagement.
  • End with a decisive close that leaves participants with a clear understanding of what was done during the meeting and what steps will be taken next.

Virtual Facilitation Solutions

Multi-branch, multi-department organizations operating in a remote environment need a skilled virtual facilitator.

We have a team made up of the best virtual facilitators in the world. We are able to help remote groups excel together in focusing on issues, building a common vision, and committing to the actions that bring the vision into reality. We use proven virtual engagement strategies and techniques that help your participants:

  • Set direction and priorities – Having competing priority initiatives typically translates to wasted opportunity. Skilled facilitators help you create your organization’s view of success and related priorities that will drive desired outcomes.
  • Create team alignment –  Different departments working to achieve separate organizational aims is counterproductive. A facilitator is practiced in the art of getting everyone moving together towards a common goal.
  • Simplify decision making – Leaders often have trouble saying “no” to new ideas or potential initiatives. Professional facilitators help you develop clear and agreed upon priorities that make it easier to remain focused.
  • Communicate the message – When leaders walk around with policies, strategies, or rules locked in their heads, few people act on them.  Facilitated sessions allow staff, suppliers, and even clients to help your organization reach its potential.

We have platform expertise in Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Skype for Business, and more!

Do you need a skilled virtual facilitator to get your people engaged, keep them focused and on track, manage dysfunction, build consensus, and ensure commitment to follow through?
