Can you remember the last time you were in a productive meeting, focus group, or facilitated session? One where everyone was engaged, concerns were raised and addressed, and progress was made? Well, you may find it difficult to recall because it is rarely the case. More often than not, sessions drag on and on, with people talking over each other, attitudes clashing, and no clear progress being made. It’s unfortunate, but facilitated sessions are often doomed before they even start.
