By: Rod Napier and Eli Sharp

When meetings draw employees away from day-to-day tasks but fail to reach their intended outcome, it has huge costs to the organization. All too often, this happens because meetings lack purpose—people gather together to discuss a problem but don’t know how to approach it strategically.Experienced facilitators and consultants Rodney Napier and Eli Sharp describe classic designs, such as the Future Search, Collapsing Consensus, and Genie in the Bottle. Applying to wide-ranging workplace issues, these designs provide the tools to enable any gathering to solve problems, build trust, and deal with conflict.

During this webcast, you will learn:

  • Better strategies for facilitation.
  • Meeting designs for different learning objectives.
  • Problem-solving and priority setting.
  • Conflict resolution.
