Do you like telling stories? How about listening to them?
For the rest of our lives we will either be telling or listening to stories. Stories simply help us to get a message across, help others, and to share some very engaging info.
Think about it, we all share stories in every aspect of our life, the most common being during monotonous conversations. Nobody wants to be in a boring conversation!
Have you ever asked what makes a good facilitator? Have you, while facilitating a meeting or a discussion asked, “Am I doing a good job or do I really suck at this”? I can honestly say that I have asked this question several times while leading both meetings and discussions.

Over the last couple of days I have researched, gathered information, and asked several leaders what makes a good facilitator. With the information, I put together a few thoughts and tips to help you be a good facilitator.
