Ownership groups, management teams, and others often have a need for professional facilitation of meetings. At times, the impetus comes from a conflict that has made effective discussion of an issue on their own exceedingly difficult. This calls for a special form of conflict-resolving facilitation: that is mediation. But there are a wide range of other circumstances when expert facilitation can offer great benefits.

BMC Associates has provided highly successful facilitation in such situations as:

  • Meetings engaging a large number of stakeholders (from 10 to 200) in an informational, planning, or decision-making process.
  • Critical and complex negotiations between organizations that could not be concluded without assistance.
  • Meetings of Boards of Directors, management teams, and others seeking to improve their group process and effectiveness.
  • Newly-forming or transformational teams that want to learn how to make the most of their group interactions.

The associates at BMC can provide numerous forms of facilitation, depending on what the circumstances require. These range from process planning before meetings to active coaching during a meeting and to actual leadership of a particular meeting. But, in every case, our goal is to assist the principals in determining their own outcomes and building their process skills for future meetings.
