Every day, we are getting increasingly alarming updates about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its spread into our communities. Our team has been discussing the ways we can support health departments, businesses and organizations needing to collaborate with others at a time when in person meetings and events pose health risks.
Some of our clients have opted to continue their collective decision making processes in virtual meetings. As a company, we are committed to collaborating with our clients to meet both their needs and the needs of the communities they serve. During this period when telecommuting and physical distancing strategies are being encouraged, we are offering our virtual services to our clients at a reduced rate.
We have extensive experience in a variety of engaging on line platforms to facilitate group processes for collaborative planning, focus groups, participatory evaluation, and other staff and stakeholder engagement events. Participants frequently share with us how surprised they are at the level of engagement these platforms encourage and how quickly decisions can be made by using the varied tools. Since participants have the option to speak, write, or share responses with polls and emoticons many participants who might be hesitant to engage in person are more expressive and engaged in the virtual meeting rooms.
These platforms have many features that most other videoconferencing platforms do not, such whiteboards, virtual flipcharts, and breakout rooms; along with more common features such as polls, chat pods, screen sharing, video, and integrated audio. The key asset we have to offer in geographically dispersed work is the many years of experience we have in designing, facilitating, and producing quality virtual engagement meetings that achieve the targeted goals.
In addition to providing virtual facilitation services to geographically dispersed entities, Prismatic Solutions can facilitate all of the following with you and your team on line:
- Public Information and Public Feedback Meetings
- Strategic Planning and Action Planning
- Board and Staff Meetings and Virtual Retreats
- Clifton Strengths to enable participants to maximize their strengths at work; communicate effectively across strengths; create project teams around the needed strengths
We also coach leaders on how to run productive online meetings that engage the participants; achieve the objectives, and produce actionable results.
Prismatic Solutions is ready to address your needs. We will work with you to find the most appropriate and affordable options.
