Does this sound familiar? It's a Monday morning staff meeting. There are at least three conversations going on that have nothing to do with the agenda. Only half the staff has shown up, and someone is being very disruptive and argumentative for apparently no reason whatsoever. In other words, you are utterly frustrated. If this is indeed familiar and you'd like to make a change in your work group structure for the better, then the Successful Facilitator Simulation is for you.
The Facilitating Successfully Simulation is designed to help participants become effective facilitators and get meetings back on track. By providing learners with the opportunity to practice facilitative techniques and strategies, the simulation will challenge and strengthen those skills necessary for overcoming productivity barriers and enhancing communication.
Chosen as a member of a two-person co-facilitation team for Renaissance Foods, Inc., which owns and operates several diverse restaurant chains, learners will organize and execute a meeting between the marketing personnel of the Eastern and Western divisions of Burger Hutch, one of Renaissance's most successful chains. The divisions, tasked with creating Burger Hutch's new seasonal promotion, historically have had little success organizing similar promotions in a timely fashion, and Renaissance management has decided to make a change.
The Facilitating Successfully Simulation is based on the SkillSoft series "Facilitating Successfully" and contains links to the following SkillSoft courses: mgmt_08_a01_bs_enus, mgmt_08_a02_bs_enus, mgmt_08_a03_bs_enus, mgmt_08_a04_bs_enus, and mgmt_08_a05_bs_enus.
The simulation comprises 4 scenarios and an introduction.
Managers, team leaders, anyone who will conduct/lead meetings or work groups.
