About MG RUSH Facilitation Training and Coaching

In 2004, Morgan Madison and Company acquired the rights to the FAST Facilitation technique, as well as the exclusive use of the MG RUSH identity.

MG RUSH Facilitation Training

Building on JAD, FAST, and other facilitation and leadership approaches we created an enhanced, holistic, robust facilitation technique that continues to evolve, reflecting today’s organizations: agile, distributed, electronic, and multicultural inclusiveness.

The MG RUSH Professional Facilitation technique fills gaps left by other facilitation techniques, placing a strong emphasis on consensus building, decision quality, inclusiveness, planning, requirements gathering, and project management excellence. In short, MG RUSH ensures that your organization runs more useful meetings and workshops.

OUR MISSION

plans that are aligned,

decisions that resonate,

Facilitation versus Facilitating

Facilitating creates an environment that builds teamwork and innovation. At MG RUSH, we shift the thinking of our participants from facilitation (as a noun or a static way of being) to facilitating (as a verb or a dynamic way of doing)—making it easier for meeting participants to collaborate, leading to more informed decisions. Facilitating requires speaking with people rather than at them. Facilitating stimulates and inspires people and cultures.

MG RUSH Facilitation Training

We build competence around structured facilitation, providing facilitators with the skills and agility to help participants improve . . .

  • How they think about group decision-making
  • Skills such as active listening, clear speaking, keen observing, and precise challenging 
  • Being content-neutral; passionate about results, yet unbiased about path
  • Stressing the importance of your holarchy (ie, organizational goal alignment)

Through our Professional Facilitation Training, participants develop consciousness about the challenges and differences of becoming a facilitative leader–that extends above and beyond traditional leadership, so that groups and teams realize the full potential of commitment, consensus, ownership, and responsibility.

“I believe this training is one of the best tools I’ve used in the past decade. In a company where decisions by consensus are common, facilitation stops being an analytical job and becomes a leadership quality, a competitive advantage.” — L.A., Team Lead (see more)
