Unproductive meetings cost businesses nearly $37 billion annually across the globe. But what if they could be more effective?

We all know the core problems with meetings, and we all dread attending the low-context, no-action-items, meetings-about-having-more-meetings, that regularly seem to pop up on our calendar. It's even become an unfortunate punchline around the workplace water-cooler. 
It doesn't have to be this way.
When you create the right type of meeting structure for your organization, it can produce exceptional results across the board. 

A more strategic approach to meetings

Effective meetings occur when team members come together to openly discuss ideas, debate issues, overcome obstacles and develop a shared purposeful plan that drives results. In fact, giving your teams time to step away from their day-to-day routines allows them to focus on the big picture and how they contribute to the overall purpose and mission of the organization. It's hard to do that when your head is down on 14 different tasks and projects.
But creating meetings that stay on track and actually produce results can be a challenge for many organizations. Thankfully, we've been facilitating meetings for 20+ years so you can trust that we've got your back! Our TeamWorks meeting facilitation package works for any size team or department, within any industry, whether you have a for-profit or non-profit alignment.
In short, we help you create and manage effective meetings to get stuff done, and it's all backed by research, observation, and technology.

Meetings Designed With Purpose, Facilitated With Passion

Your TeamWorks Facilitator acts as a positive, neutral, unbiased ally to assist your executive teams, board, managers, sales teams, or front line staff to produce results.
With meeting formats ranging from small internal planning sessions to large offsite strategic planning retreats; whatever your organization’s size, culture, or industry a TeamWorks facilitated meeting has the power to help any leader and their team to improve performance.

Here's a sample list of the types of meetings our expert facilitators can customize to your unique needs. 

Strategic Planning Offsites

With our unique computer assisted team-based strategic planning process, we work with your teams to; break down silo’s, encourage collaboration and free flowing discussion, generate innovative solutions to challenges and hurdles, establish priorities, commitment and accountability, all while developing a clear, simple to follow action plan that produces measurable results.

Team Building

Is your team capable of offering more passion, more enthusiasm, more moxie? Teams that suffer from a lack of an On Purpose vision will “go through the motions”, but lack that fundamental drive and enthusiasm your organization needs to catapult you to the next level. Facilitated team meetings help you create a shared, higher purpose and philosophical alignment; leading to stronger cultural bonds and deeper accountability.

Board Meetings

Your board members are experts in their own right. Tapping into their insights and expertise while ensuring CEO and executive alignment, is vital to the success of your organization. These sessions encourage best leadership practices while retaining good corporate governance. We help you address differing opinions and uncertainty in a common forum, creating a space to develop innovative solutions.

Sales Team Meetings

Effective and inclusive sales meetings are a critical component of creating a great sales culture. They also provide the perfect opportunity to build skills and motivation. A facilitated sales meeting can help you develop comprehensive team targets, build collaboration while inspiring healthy competition, optimize the skills of each team member and focus their efforts on action items that are positioned for the greatest success.

Marketing Strategy Meetings

A calculated marketing strategy can drive sales, increase market presence and enhance your brand's overall value to customers. A facilitated marketing strategy meeting helps your team develop a cohesive brand strategy by allowing for creative thinking in a collaborative, systematic environment. Create a clear brand positioning statement, craft your core values and uncover your unique differentiators in meeting designed to cater to creatives and suits alike.

Mergers & Integrations

Mergers and acquisitions work best when the integration process is holistic, purposeful and well executed. Our facilitators act as a neutral third party to help focus on the best interests of the merged entity. We help you to develop a combined philosophy, set of values and corporate culture based on the greatest strengths of both parties. Uniting team members ensures the development of common goals while reducing the uncertainty and anxiety inevitable during a merger.
