A 'facilitator' by definition is a person who makes any action or process easier.

Our primary task is to minimize obstacles that could derail a meeting's purpose, making it easier for attendees to absorb the material.

In part one of our three-part series on becoming a better facilitator, we cover what you should do before the meeting starts. Part two will discuss what should be done during meeting, with part three following suit with what you should do after.

The three parts will be explained through 15 important questions we should ask ourselves through each step of a meeting. MLP 044 presents 1-5:

  1. Why is it important to figure out why you need to meet?
  2. Why choose a great meeting location and make it inviting?
  3. Why should you be prepared and what should you get ready?
  4. Why should you get in touch with everyone before the meeting?
  5. Why should you set up early?
