Why hire a facilitator?


Companies often try to conduct strategy sessions themselves. Time and time again, they come to Optimize after running meetings that were not as productive as they could have been. A professional strategic planning facilitator will:

  • Challenge meeting participants to be prepared for their strategy session.
  • Create a safe environment where meeting participants can be forthcoming and candid.
  • Be a buffer, quieting the loud voices and providing an opportunity for everyone to be heard.
  • Keep your meeting on track and on point.
  • Offer outside perspective.
  • Provide tools and resources.
  • Keep track of key deliverables and takeaways.
  • Hold your team accountable.
