Facilitating Consensus for Better Meetings
Don’t let your ideas die in crummy board brainstorms or get bogged down in bad meetings. Consensus and collaboration is a beautiful thing until it kills or waters down a good idea. In this session, you’ll learn how to get a group to move forward on an idea and get more consensus building strategies.
