Our Services / Executive Facilitation
Meetings that Matter
Simply put, we help facilitate difficult meetings. From managing conflicting personalities or individual motives, to structuring unique approaches to challenging topics, we help executives and Boards find clarity, optimal solutions, and the courage to make decisions.
At MacPhie, we understand that, as leaders, you spend every minute of your day working in the business. That’s why we design leadership meetings that create time and space for you to work on the business, focusing on the issues and opportunities that have the biggest impact. Our approach makes leadership meetings matter again, by energizing your executive team and helping people to navigate difficult situations and conversations. Your executive team will leave our sessions more aligned – and armed with tools and concrete plans to face the challenges ahead.
We believe in what we call Activist Facilitation, wherein we seek to get to the best answer for your team – not consensus. Consensus is often little more than a bland compromise that is sub-optimal and pleases no one. Activist Facilitation also means we don’t shy away from sharing our own perspectives to help drive decision-making. Participants in our facilitations comment on our inclusive and upbeat process and appreciate how we expand their thinking with fresh perspective that allows them to approach and solve their problems through a new lens.
Our support includes planning and preparing for key meetings, facilitating working sessions, and providing detailed reports that clearly synthesize discussion items, themes, and conclusions.
Strengthening and Unifying an Executive Team Through Dialogue
“As a believer of disciplined efforts in continuous improvement, I’ve depended on MacPhie to support me in both personal professional growth and development of a high performing executive team. The MacPhie team helped me to crystallize and articulate our strategy and distinct priorities for the business. Through our leadership sessions, they created a collaborative environment, unleashing the ability of leadership to align on strategic priorities, focus on solutions, and address root-causes of challenges. They anticipated our needs, coordinated resources, and importantly helped us remain accountable in making progress.”
