How to make good group decisions and work collaboratively
This is a rebroadcast of an earlier show (original air date August 24, 2022); no calls will be taken.
From Fortune 500 companies to local civic engagement organizations to the family dinner table, good group decision making can be the difference between achieving a desired outcome or floundering when important work needs to get done. We’ll discuss what makes for good group decision making—what to look for when participating in a meeting, which group dynamics to be on the lookout for, and how best to work toward a desired outcome.
Craig Freshley, professional meeting facilitator, speaker, author; his latest book is Together We Decide: An Essential Guide for Making Good Group Decisions
