The Johnson Applied Solutions facilitators’ mission is to assist and manage the process of information exchange. The facilitators’ role is to help with HOW the discussion is proceeding, and our responsibility is to address the journey, rather than the destination. The Johnson Applied Solutions facilitation process concerns itself with all the tasks needed to run a productive and impartial meeting. Johnson Applied Solutions facilitators provide non-directive leadership to ensure that the group arrive at the decisions that are on task.

Johnson Applied Solutions facilitators’ role is one of assistance and guidance, not control. Our approach is appropriate when the organization is concerned not only with the decision that is made, but also with the way the decision is made. As we focus you on your social networks, your social capital, the quality of your conversations, your engagement processes and even your individual thinking, we are teaching your organization to trigger the best instincts, both individually and collectively. Our facilitation services include:

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Conflict Resolution

  • Team Building
