- Design productive and inspirational meetings.
- Collect group needs and facilitate gatherings to advance the work of groups.
- Construct and deliver innovative facilitated experiences.
- Express leadership presence to drive outcomes in both small and large group settings.
GIP members often play a facilitator role, both formally and informally, at our institutions. During this interactive webinar, the GIP will offer to help sharpen members' skills and share best practices.
