Using an independent facilitator to run your meeting means that you can be free to participate. You can focus on the topic at hand without being worried about keeping the meeting on track, managing different participants or being unfairly judged as having too much influence or bias on the process.
Using an independent facilitator also ensures that:
- You have a process design that identifies a clear purpose and outcomes
- All participants have the opportunity to contribute
- Your assumptions are ‘tested’ through having the situation viewed from a ‘fresh perspective’
