No More Bad Meetings

+ Attending

This class will meet every other Wednesday from September 17 until December 10, 2014

meeting (noun): a gathering of people for a particular purpose

Learn how to hold efficient meetings, build common ground, make plans, and have meaningful discussions.

The approaches presented in this class ensure that everyone's perspective is heard, and that what is important to each person, and their contribution, is honored in the final product or decision.

Meetings based upon these methods challenge the dominant culture of hierarchy and separation. By using them, people begin to act themselves into new ways of thinking about relationships and collaboration.

Topics will include: • Focused discussion • Facilitating efficient meanings • Accessing the group mind • Agenda planning • Efficient consensus • Action planning • Strategic thinking • Making meetings fun!

Class facilitator: Laura Turiano

Laura designs and facilitates participatory meetings for groups working for transformational social change. She principally uses the Technology of Participation (ToP) group process facilitation method, and incorporates other approaches, such as Liberating Structures and Convergent Facilitation, into this framework. She completed the ToP mastery program in 2013. For more information, or to contact her, see
