What is Meeting Facilitation?

Simply put, meeting facilitation is how to get the most out of your meeting. Our expert facilitators help you craft an effective meeting plan, and then lead the event with objectivity and focus. That way your time and energy will be spent achieving your meeting goals, not managing personality conflicts or competing agendas. We’ll keep your meeting on track and fully engage every participant (even the quiet ones). And we’ll make sure all of your important ideas are captured along the way.

Types of Meetings We Facilitate:

  • Team Vision/Mission
  • Team building
  • Goal-setting
  • Future-thinking
  • Brainstorming/problem-solving
  • Conflict/issue resolution

Custom Meeting Facilitation

Your team is unique
Your meeting should be, too.

Your team is a diverse collection of unique individuals, skills, and motivations. It has a specific dynamic that is all its own. A one-size-fits-all meeting simply won’t get you where you need to go. That’s why we specialize in customizing your agenda — and our approach — to help you achieve the objectives of your retreat. We’re coaches, not consultants, which means we don’t force you to go where we think you should go, we help you get where you truly want to go, powerfully and effectively.

Custom Meeting Facilitation Retreats
It’s your meeting, only better! One of our professional facilitators works with you directly to co-create your agenda, facilitate meaningful discussion and achieve the results you need.

Prior to your meeting our professional facilitator will meet with you as needed to discover and clarify your objectives and desired outcomes, as well as to identify potential challenges and obstacles to accomplishing these things. Together you will then co-create the meeting agenda and overall approach that will best fit your needs and lead to a successful outcome for you and your team.

Facilitation is available for both a full-day (8hr) and a half-day (4hr) experience

Full day – 8 hrs

  • $5000 if delivered at sparkspace in Columbus plus room rental fee
  • $5000 for a full day (8hrs) if delivered off-site for groups of up to 20. Groups over 20 add an additional $99 per person

Half day – 4 hrs

Contact us at 614.224.7727 or email us at guesthappiness@sparkspace.com. We’ll talk through your needs first to make sure you’re receiving the type of facilitation service that best serves you and your team.

After you book, Mike will schedule a free Discovery Call with you to talk through what to expect, how to prepare, goals for success, etc.

We recognize that your meeting or retreat is typically only the beginning of the work to be done. In addition to supporting you in the creation and delivery of customized facilitation, our professional facilitators will meet with you 3 more times following your event to provide coaching support in the implementation of action items that result. These will be scheduled around the 30, 60 and 90 day marks following your meeting day.

Fearlessly Engaged Teams

The most engaged and powerful teams are those in which each member feels secure enough to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas openly and take appropriate risk. The biggest obstacle to a team reaching this level of engagement is FEAR.

This full-day, corporate retreat experience is designed to guide each team member to identify their primary fear and develop tools and techniques to overcome it. Your group will also work together to create a culture that promotes trust, full engagement and a level of performance very few teams ever achieve.
