Facilitating & Team Building

Effective collaboration through trust, honesty and clarity.

Facilitating Team Events

We are experts in running team events including everything from leadership retreats, strategic planning sessions and team-building offsites; through to large scale workshops and conferences. Realizer can act as facilitator, emcee, content designer, speaker recruitment.


We build trust within teams by surfacing the key issues and getting everyone to have their say on them. One way we do this is by having each member of the team complete a survey on the team’s performance and working style, and then having everyone look at and discuss the results together.

Honest conversations

Our team events are carefully facilitated so that everyone has a chance to have their honest opinions heard. In many teams, some people dominate the conversation, and your smartest people may have less influence than your loudest people. We redress that balance and the results are brilliant – buy in from the whole team.

Clarity & Commitment

Team decision-making requires clarity on what’s been decided and commitment to the course of action. It’s important to differentiate between agreement, where you’re searching for unanimity, and alignment – where people align behind a decision even if they argued for another option along the way.

The benefits

Having an external facilitator makes a difference:

  • Your team session makes more progress, more quickly towards your goals.
  • There is wider buy-in as everyone feels their voice was heard.
  • Any existing politics or relationship issues within the team can be overcome.
  • The leader can be 100% involved instead of trying to facilitate.
