Facilitating Difficult Meetings: How to Achieve Consensus and Collaboration
Meetings are an important tool for sharing information, gathering ideas and making decisions, but sometimes they are less than effective and even stressful. Difficulties can arise because of complex problems to solve, stakeholders with different priorities, and personality conflicts. Learn how to act as a meeting facilitator to resolve problems, achieve consensus and manage personalities.
