“There are two ways of being creative. One can sing and dance. Or one can create an environment in which singers and dancers flourish.”

– Warren Bennis, Management Expert

The Wunderlin Company offer many services, but facilitation is at the foundation of everything we do.

Skilled facilitation can mean the difference between engagement and disenchantment, understanding and frustration, action and apathy. Including a strong facilitator in your next meeting is one of the best proactive steps a leader can take to ensure success.

An experienced facilitator will improve group effectiveness and structure. We work with leadership to design the meeting for maximum effectiveness – establishing ground rules, determining who needs to take part, defining the goals and objectives that should be accomplished, and creating actions by which success will be measured.

A facilitator sets the tone for a productive meeting and helps the group redirect when things go awry.

We help to identify behaviors that are consistent and inconsistent with the team’s values.

Facilitators free up participants to engage fully in the meeting’s substance. We are highly skilled in asking questions in a way that leads to productive answers, and pivoting when questions or answers are less productive. Participants focus their complete attention on addressing issues and creating opportunities for your organization while the facilitator manages the process and tools, and ensures a safe environment where all opinions are valued.
