Description

Facilitation skills are an essential success factor for effective meetings!

Simplifying information, adding missing facts and revealing correlations is an indispensable resource in complex meetings and interactions, especially if the partners have a very different view on the topic or a differentiated level of knowledge. Moderators with this ability are excellent at bridging the gaps, preventing misunderstandings and leading to a common outcome.
