Target-oriented discussions in (large) groups

The need for professional moderation in important meetings, projects, strategy or post-merger integration workshops  especially with large numbers of participants  is steadily growing. Ambitious goals, complex tasks and questions, and a tight time frame often require issues to be handled across departments and functions, even across locations and cultures. The success factors are good preparation, extensive experience with proven moderation methods, and streamlined, participation-oriented leadership of the discussion and decision-making process.

Typical challenges in moderating workshops and meetings:

  • In meetings ...

it is not clear what the goal is supposed to be; the opinion leaders make one unrelated statement after another, and the discussion goes in circles. The other participants give up out of boredom. The meeting takes longer and does not produce the expected results. In the end, everyone is frustrated.

  • In workshops ...

lecture-style presentation goes on too long, participants are asked to process too much information, the group discusses things aimlessly, important contributions are ignored, employees refuse to actively participate, and results are not recorded.

  • In large-group events ...

there is no professional moderation to create and hold a balance between the justified goals and expectations of the customers/organizers and the expectations/interests of the participants, and to ensure that the participants can identify with the goals and results and help implement them.

The key features of our moderation approach are:

  • clearly explaining the task, the objectives of the event and the relevant interests of the participants and developing an appropriate moderation concept
  • directing the work and decision-making process in a target-oriented, results-focused way, with a broad range of methods
  • including all of the participants and actively addressing their respective issues and questions, creating a strong level of motivation, identification with the results and an internal commitment to the later implementation.
  • providing helpful documentation of the process and the results of the event, thereby supporting the follow-up phase.
