Hardly a day goes by without a meeting, and all too often they lack a clear purpose or even worse, clear outcomes. Some participants start rambling and prevent others from participating actively. The sad truth is that, more often than not, meetings are in the way of work, when they should in fact be a great opportunity to progress on projects and align teams.

Whether through on- or offline meetings an organisation's meeting practice tells a lot about its culture: its power dynamics, roles and leadership, listening skills, how the principles are lived in the every-day life of the organisaiton, etc. A collaborative meeting is a format that enables the meeting attendees to engage in rotating roles, and so to decentralising responsibility, it ensures that everyone has a chance to participate and it fosters the listening skills of the group. It's a highly efficient format, easy to adapt to your own context that, through repeated practice, will foster the collaborative culture of your organisation.

Online Facilitated Workshop

This is a Facilitated Online Workshop, so come prepared to participate! In this two-hour workshop we'll practice the simple yet powerful format of collaborative meetings. We will explain the methodology and the reasoning behind it. We will then put it in practice using the breakout rooms, and will end the workshop with a reflection phase, to adapt the methodology to our context.
