The best meeting and workshop facilitators think of themselves as orchestra conductors. Even though they are in front of the room, they know that all the music comes from the participants and none from them as conductors. There are two primary approaches. Act like you’re conducting a classical piece of music for meetings where discipline and alignment are most important. Act like you’re conducting a jazz ensemble when creativity and innovation matter more.
In both cases, actually in all cases, think through your prelude, delivery and follow through. The difference is how you approach delivery.
