Shackleton Group brings years of facilitation and leadership experience to assist you in accomplishing myriad organizational objectives. Our facilitators instill a guided process, and an absolute, recognizable objectivity establishing a collaborative environment with participants while building buy-in on a plan to achieve common goals. Our facilitation models, process and tools afford a structured flexibility that is built into our approach allowing our trained facilitators to deviate from a plan when necessary, but always accomplish the objectives.

Issue Mitigation/Smoke Jumping

Shackleton Group will help you identify, address and resolve immediate or long-term issues within your team. Our extensive leadership and organizational consulting experience, and our comprehensive facilitation skills allow us to smoke jump and rapidly respond to urgent organizational issues that require immediate attention. Those same skill sets and experience can be applied to facilitate you and your team through issues that are less immediate but may still require rapid development of long-term solutions.

Conflict Resolution

Shackleton Group will help you identify, address and rapidly resolve conflicts on your team. Frequently, two of the greatest barriers to resolving conflicts on a team are the perception of lack of objectivity by the individual charged with resolving the conflict (i.e. they are actual invested in a particular outcome), or lack of experience in dealing with or resolving major conflicts. Our facilitation experience and approach ensure objectivity, inclusion in the process, and interested party buy-in that yields a more enduring outcome.


Shackleton Group will help you plan for, coordinate and execute successful conferences or events. We will work with you to develop a comprehensive event execution strategy that includes a detailed facilitation plan and agenda for successfully executing your event. Our facilitators will take you and your team step-by-step through planning and execution of your event providing the tools and experience to ensure successful accomplishment of the intended purpose and objectives.
