How to moderate difficult Teams in Hybrid Meetings

Ellen Hermens

Moderating hybrid meetings – are you prepared for the unexpected?

Moderating meetings with challenging team members – can you handle it?

Disturbances in meetings need to be handled thoroughly, disturbing team members need to be lead carefully, if you want your meeting to be successful.

The Devil’s Facilitation Playground is a special setup to practice moderation skills with a difficult audience.

During short prepared sample panel discussions, all participants will experience the effects of disturbing attendees – and see, how our sample moderators try to handle it.

After the panel discussions, we will have a big common feedback round, where we can share our experiences:

Which intervention of the moderators did work best? Why?

Which did not work, at all? Why?

In our 2h workshop, we even go one step further and work with a hybrid setup!

This workshop therefore offers both, a room where you can join the workshop in person and an online connection via Zoom, where you can join remotely.

Attendance is limited, so we can benefit the most together.

Time: 28. January, 11:00 – 13:00 (2 hours)

About Ellen Hermens

As a trainer and coach, she analyzes and communicates the differences between these experiences and how her clients achieve the desired result. In the literature, such leadership is called “Agile Employee Leadership” and many techniques and methods are known as Management 3.0.

For years, Ellen Hermens has been coaching and training leaders from business and non-profit organizations in modern, sustainable leadership that motivates teams to lead with ownership at eye level.

Her leadership experience comes from over 15 years in leadership roles in an international non-profit organization where the leaders are volunteers who are elected or appointed annually. This already holds an environment in which it is best to motivate team members to act autonomously and self-organized in the spirit of agile leadership. From many conversations and trainings with seasoned leaders from industry, business, and corporations, it is apparent that these experiences are transferable to businesses and government agencies as they address fundamental leadership skills.

She is a founding member of our club and has been active in the Toastmaster organization for many years.
