Title: Facilitating Successful Meetings
Trainers: Kate Carnes & Helen Wieczorek
Date/Time: February 10 & 11, 2015 9:00am - 3:00pm
Hours: .5 CEU's

Intended Audience: Intended Audience: Department of Health and Human Services employees, foster and adoptive parents, and the staff of social service agencies providing services to clients of the Department.

More individuals are being called upon to facilitate meetings with their colleagues, service providers and others. Some will be naturally comfortable in the facilitator role; however, many of us benefit from building skills in handling the common concerns that arise in meetings. All too often time spent in meetings is wasted. In this program, we work on methods to assure productivity and results. Do you need to develop skills in planning meetings? Leading them? Handling disruptive behaviors? Bringing groups to decisions? Topics in the program are: pre-planning, agenda setting, facilitating and recording techniques, decision making methods, balancing "process" and "content" in meetings, and techniques for encouraging behaviors that keep meetings on track and minimizing behaviors that are disruptive or counterproductive.
