Chairing meetings that matter

06/05/2020 - 11:00 to 13:00


Free/Voluntary Contributions

Delivered via Zoom Webinar

Meetings can be dreadful and bad chairing makes them worse.

On this day we look at transformational person-centred approaches to approaching the chairing of meetings. We provide deeper insights into the psychological processes that make this role challenging. ‘Best Saves’ for those really difficult moments when chairing meetings are creatively explored. We provide a practical, skill based and creative approach.

We will cover:

•Setting a Good tone/Exploring the ‘whole elephant’ – story so far of experience in chairing meetings – good and bad meetings – graphiced timeline and highs and lows of story so far

•Meetings I do not want – negative chairing….

•Thinking Hats and Values – linked to role of chair – where are hats when things are going well and where are they when things are not?

•Our shared vision for great meetings and excellent chairing?

•Personal planning for future chairing – what do I need to get better at – what should I manage?

•Specific skill teaching – re when things go wrong – eg tears, personal attacks, talking in side conversations, silent members, lack of contribution, anger and so on…‘best saves’ explored with group – using live role play – with one chair

•Solution Circle demonstration – chairing skills/problem solving modelled – approach when teams stuck…

•Emotional elements of chairing – ‘its not personal’ – splitting, projection, transference explored and ‘handling projections’ activity

•Vision and Road Blocks – small groups chaired and minuted – creative problem solving – Blocks to vision of great meetings creatively removed or worked around
