Event description

Description

NOTE: This is a two-part webinar series. Part One: June 5, at 12 noon ET and Part Two: June 11, at 12 noon ET for one hour each. If at all possible, attendees should participate in both. The cost is the same whether for one or both. Free for members.

Have you ever wondered why meetings can some times wander off in all directions?

Why discussions on important issues can just keep going in circles and never seem to get resolved?

This webinar will give you some insights into how we think and process information, then present some models that can be used to keep discussions on track and arrive at decisions that can be supported by the whole group.

In the first one hour session we will:

  1. Have a discussion on human cognitive processes and how they affect our conversations and decision making,
  2. Introduce a tool for planning focused questions to plan the conversations and have an opportunity to practice the model between sessions.

In the second session we will:

  1. Discuss the use of the focus question planning tool which was practiced between sessions,
  2. Introduce and practice the second tool called ORID, Objective, Reflective, Interpretive and Decisional. This tool allows us to take a deep dive into how to plan the conversation, which allows all participants the chance to be part of the discussion and decisions.
