Facilitation is a “process” skillset used by leaders to direct, organize and align groups of people during strategy sessions, stakeholder consultations, project planning, and debriefs.
The most accomplished facilitators have the training and expertise to create and lead a facilitation experience—a customized and highly personalized process designed to engage a specific gathering of people—so they can have better conversations and achieve better outcomes, faster.
The value of hiring a professional facilitator like Nora Sheffe is the calibre of experience she brings as an in-demand, independent expert with a proven track record, repeat clients and ongoing word-of-mouth referrals.
For over 20 years, Nora has successfully motivated and mobilized groups of leaders around the world to understand their common objectives, plan how to achieve them, and advance toward tangible, high-performance results.
Facilitation doesn’t need to be sector-specific. Effective facilitators share a keen awareness, the ability to “read the room,” and a nimbleness to customize every step in the facilitation process. This includes the agility to adapt the process mid-stream during facilitation, if that’s where the group’s energy is flowing.
These and other process skills enable professional facilitators like Nora Sheffe to transcend “content” by focusing, rallying and connecting the voices and thoughts of the subject matter experts in attendance.
