Group Facilitation and Training

MFR Law Group facilitates meetings of 5 or more in a variety of areas, including, company or department retreats, annual goal setting, strategic planning, diversity initiatives, or team building. Facilitation can be combined with training or one-on-one coaching and mentoring.

Our training approach focuses on accommodating the needs of adult learners and utilizes substantive research regarding your organization’s goals and our experience as educators. We begin by working with you to understand your organizational culture. The training is then designed specifically for your industry and the outcomes you are seeking. We use a presentation style that includes visual aids, pre- and post-tests, and role play to communicate course content. In some situations it has been appropriate to design the agenda for training after communicating with class participants regarding their specific needs. We have found that training is most effective when as trainers we are flexible and seek constructive feedback.

These are our most sought-after offerings but if there is specific training you would like conducted, we would be happy to work with you to develop the training you need.

Do you already have existing training that needs to be delivered?

We also have experience presenting training designed by a third party. This is fairly common in the corporate context where companies work with consultants to design the training and a “train the trainer” program to permit wide-spread dissemination of the training. In situations where materials are already prepared we review the goals, objectives, and training design with our clients to ensure that the program is customized to achieve the desired results. We are very flexible and work to create training experiences that meet your needs.

“Ms. Reed has demonstrated communication skills that have resulted in a high level of staff engagement, inclusion of diverse perspectives, and a sense of group achievement.”

“It is perhaps Ms. Reed’s ability to effectively teach concepts and also relay tools to reinforce those concepts that made the experience of working with Ms. Reed a satisfying one for staff.”

“Ms. Fleming Reed facilitated communication between the two [individuals] following the conclusion of the investigative report in a way that enabled them to mend the wounds created by the complaint and investigative time period.”
