Most group sessions, whether a workshop or a team meeting, are flat-out boring. The group leader tends to do most of the talking or 'presenting', while the participants try to stay awake or end up staring into space or multi-tasking on their phones.
And those participants are lucky to walk away with any kind of result. They might even forget what the session was about before they get back to their office!
But that all changes with a good facilitator.
When the session leader uses expert facilitation skills to generate discussion and participation, the whole atmosphere changes.
People become engaged with the content, share ideas, discuss insights,
...and get the results they need.
So why isn't everyone using facilitation skills?
Because it doesn't come naturally to most people. When you're the expert, your first instinct is to explain everything.
But people learn best and retain that information when they discuss ideas, ask questions, and explore the relevance to their own situations.
Then they walk away not only having internalized what they learned, but ready to implement it right away.
Luckily, anyone can learn the facilitation skills needed to run their group sessions more effectively.

I met Rich at the 2015 Traffic and Conversion Summit hosted by Digital Marketer. At the time my entire business was built upon very poor and simplistic email marketing and e-commerce. Rich put me onto Infusionsoft and gave me all of the necessary training to feel like an advanced user in just a few months. Because of regular coaching interaction with Rich and his team, I’ve been able to execute growth and automation plans that I never would have figured out on my own. The result? My business is about 3 times larger than it was in 2015. I highly recommend Rich and the TAG team as a resource to tap into. I love feeling like I have true knowledge, experience and proven plans to continue growing the business.
I wanted to thank you for the advice you have given me so far. Not only with Infusionsoft, but helping me to move our overstock through Amazon has been a complete lifesaver. To think that the amount of money being transferred into my bank account every two weeks, I have no idea where we would be if you hadn't taken the time to explain the benefits of FBA and selling on Amazon in general to me. Being a very young entrepreneur, I have had quite a few people take advantage of me and had consultants who were completely useless. It's so refreshing that from our two conversations already I have been able to actually make money as opposed to just wasting it.
