  • Provides professional management of dysfunctional behavior
  • Enables project or team leader to participate
  • Increases meeting efficiency
  • Increases ROI or the value of the meeting outcomes relative to total costs
  • Drives group to accountability through high engagement

Here are examples of how executives have described Dr. Patrick’s facilitation skills:
