Bringing in a third party to facilitate processes and conversations allows all members of large and small groups to participate equally, while also putting the logistics in the hands of a professional. Lach Training & Consulting has acquired a reputation for designing highly interactive meetings, where important issues are discussed honestly and openly in a safe environment.
Examples of situations when small facilitation is useful:
- When the board and staff of a nonprofit are planning a retreat to identify and agree on strategic issues.
- When a staff needs conflict resolution sessions.
- When team members need their roles and responsibilities clarified.
Examples of situations when large facilitation is useful:
- When a community initiative requires input from different groups of constituents.
- When a big institution wants to engage a large number of staff in the strategic planning process.
- When a small nonprofit wants to engage community stakeholders in a planning process
- When different groups want to work as a network/coalition
