Integral Facilitator Essentials

(R)evolutionizing meetings and the people who lead them

Really excellent meetings do more than just get the job done or make sure everyone has a chance to speak.

They don’t sacrifice efficiency for participation, or stifle engagement in favor of structure. Instead, they bring together the best techniques for getting buy in and achieving outcomes.

And they aren’t slave to oppressive structures or limiting decision rules. They use enough structure to provide clarity and direction, while offering space for vital creativity that liberates people to perform at their best.

(R)evolutionized meetings are energizing, enjoyable, and enlivening—which makes them more effective at producing meaningful outcomes.
