Whether it’s a team building staff retreat or a Board of Director’s strategic planning session, well-run meetings often benefit from the expertise of a skilled facilitator who knows how to find the heart of what matters.
Groups come to Sojourn to navigate complex problems that often derail or enhance collaboration. Understanding the intricacies of personalities, work styles, hidden agendas, career goals, and managing success while working across disciplines are all factors in achieving the articulated goals.
A well-facilitated meeting or retreat at critical points can make or break a team’s ultimate success. After developing the best agenda possible, based in part on thorough discussions with the client, creating the right environment is key to a positive outcome.
Based in appreciative inquiry and finding connections that add value, Sojourn works with teams of people to find solutions so that everyone is rowing in the same direction. And strategic, well-organized and disciplined meetings with practical outcomes don’t have to be painful — we have fun in the process!
We have been privileged to work with organizations taking on the tough issues of improving nursing care, educating inner-city children, providing health care for the elderly, collaborating across multiple organizations for better eye care, improving our costal waterways, strategic planning for state-wide nursing coalitions, and enhancing ethics in nursing practice.
