Meadowlark Consulting Group
Strategic Meeting &  
Executive Retreat Facilitation

We work with you to tailor your agenda to insure your intended meeting goals and outcomes are met. We can also recommend activities, exercises and corporate learning exercises to enhance the experience for your team.

By working with us, you can focus your efforts on the content of the meeting, while we take care of the process.

We act as the neutral facilitators of your meeting. We work to focus the energy of your group on a common task and suggest alternative approaches and procedures to keep your team from getting stuck. We actively work to protect individuals and their ideas from attack, encourage participation, and help the group find win/win solutions.

Meeting Facilitation Capabilities:

  • Help clarify the goals and outcomes for your session so that they are clear, concise, meaningful and achievable
  • Develop a proposed agenda for the meeting using the facilitation tools that are best suited to your goals and your situation
  • Design the meeting to maximize participation, energy level, creativity and retention
  • Provide a facilitator for the session so that everyone on your team can participate fully
  • Facilitate the session to keep your team on track
  • Document the meeting so that key discussions and action plans are captured
  • Follow up with you after the session to ensure actions are taken, key decisions are tracked and "parking lot" items are handled

Management Retreats:

A management retreat is the perfect opportunity to get away from the all-consuming day-to-day pressures of the office and to focus on the real work of the senior management team. It is a time for you to:

  • Clarify your corporate vision
  • Identify the barriers to your growth
  • Assess your strengths and the competitive environment
  • Discuss strategy
  • Make key decisions
  • Set your priorities
  • Establish action plans

Our 4 Step Process:

1. Initial consultation and needs assessment with the client. We provide a proposal to you based upon your needs and offer you different options and methodologies for approaching our work together.
2. Data collection and modification. We work with you prior to the meeting to continue assessing your specific needs and modify initial proposals as needed.
3. During the event, we work closely with you to ensure that the process is meeting your expectations and make real time changes as necessary.
4. Follow up. We close the loop with you post meeting event to insure actions and key decisions are handled as well as to measure the expected outcomes.
