Michael Goldman (Facilitation First)[Gathering Podcast Ep.18]

Michael Goldman from Facilitation First at StartWell

For over 30 years Michael Goldman‘s professional facilitation training and services company has worked to enable more effective and efficient collaboration. In Canada, Facilitation First is a highly respected firm for its practice and network – which has trained over 20,000 certified facilitators.

In this episode of StartWell’s Gathering Podcast you’ll learn how Michael came to facilitation from the very specialised field of Speech Language Pathology at a time when there were few training manuals or mentors available in the country.

There are a ton of insights in this conversation – one of our favourites is how Michael explains the value in having an external person leading meetings as allowing actual team leaders to then participate in a more open and even-keel way.
