The cliché is, “The most interesting part of the meeting was the breaks.” Common Knowledge Associates designs meetings that are as interactive as the breaks!
Common Knowledge Associates believes the best way to prepare skilled facilitators is for them to experience being facilitated effectively. Our unique train-the-trainer workshop is entirely experiential, no PowerPoint or lengthy lectures. We teach eight proven techniques for effective facilitation. For each technique, the first step is for the participants to experience the technique and the second step is to join in a discussion about the principle that underlies what we just did– the “why” as well as the “how to.”
Your time and the time of each of your employees is too important to waste on meetings that do not accomplish everyone’s objectives or fail to deliver results.
“Having worked with Nancy Dixon at NASA and as part of Babson College's Working Knowledge program, I know that she understands as well as anyone the difference between mere talking and real communication. She is expert at helping groups of people speak and listen authentically and intelligently as an important step toward shared understanding, effective problem solving, and innovative thinking.” - Don Cohen, Managing Editor, NASA ASK Magazine
