Virtual Facilitation Courses

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.

The Comprehensive course is also more hands-on – requiring 3 training days – and includes four practice exercises.
