An extract from “Kill Bad Meetings- cut 50% of your meetings to transform your culture, improve collaboration and accelerate decisions” by Kevan Hall and Alan Hall, published by NB books
Our favorite definition of facilitation is “any activity that makes tasks easy for others.”
We prefer to use the title facilitator, rather than chairperson or meeting organizer. The title chairperson is used to describe a person who is in charge. The organizer, to me, is the person who books the room. The facilitator is the person who makes the meeting really work.
