Virtual Facilitation Courses

As the growth of virtual meetings soars, the right skills needed for meeting leaders to successfully deliver them are also in high demand. Virtual meetings are more convenient, yet they are also more complex. This means that they require more preparation and must be executed differently to drive engagement.

Whether you are a large company with multiple offices around the world or a mid-size organization with a few remote employees, Leadership Strategies’ virtual offerings will help you successfully navigate in your virtual environment. Having trained more than 20,000 people in facilitation skills, we are now using this expertise to help meeting leaders, like you, make “going virtual” easier by helping you:

  • Eliminate virtual meeting dysfunction
  • Improve virtual meeting outcomes by building group consensus
  • Increase productivity through virtual engagement strategies

Which course should you choose?

Each of these training offerings will give you the tools and specific instruction based on your current facilitation experience and/or your typical meeting “mix” and size.

Leadership Courses

Discover training dedicated to advancing and nurturing your skills as a leader. Our leadership courses show you how to take a facilitative approach to leading people and teams.

IT Professional Courses

Balancing rigorous attention to detail with effective engagement and communication – is this a problem in your technical meetings? As a professional in the Information Technology (IT) field, you need the tools to help you manage client relationships, improve your technical meetings, and achieve results faster. Our training courses equip you with the process and techniques, along with a highly-effective framework, for raising the bar with your clients, users, and key stakeholders.

Discover facilitation techniques to help solve the challenges of unclear communication, poorly defined needs, difficulty scoping projects, and delayed delivery.

Whether you want to learn how to devise a new strategic plan, formalize a business strategy, or bring your group together to develop a specific action plan, Leadership Strategies will help you with the tools and training to set up your organization for success.

Leadership Strategies combines expert facilitators with a proven strategic planning methodology, The Drivers Model, to make sure your planning pays off in your business.
