Facilitation

“Elemental Partners’ planning and facilitation approach was very positive, straightforward, yet fun and done in a way that solicited deeper thought and conversation amongst the board members and attendees of our retreats.”
~ Deary Paul Duffie, Senior Director of Organizational Development, Genentech

As facilitators, we not only provide focus and direction on the content, but we shed light on and address the underlying processes and patterns in order to increase confidence and productivity.

Articulating a clear picture of your goals and objectives, and providing creative options on how you can reach them is an essential part of the service we provide. Our approach helps to set a good tone before the event by connecting with key participants to solicit input.  We then create an informed agenda that balances collective, individual, interactive and reflective time. We facilitate a safe and open process, adapting our approaches to balance the client’s needs with the diverse needs of the participants. Clients can choose to receive a written summary articulating practical next steps and recommendations.

Examples of retreats, meetings, forums and conferences we facilitate include:

  • Board, Management and Staff retreats
  • Community forums and Town Hall meetings
  • Regional, Statewide or National Conferences
  • Coalition or Network meetings
  • Conference panels, plenaries, keynotes and workshops
