- Use graphic recording during a meeting and create a “group memory;”
- Design an overall planning or decision-making process that involves a series of meetings over time involving key stakeholders;
- Build a solid foundation as a facilitative leader or neutral facilitator by practicing the knowledge, tools and skills in “live” situations, including in difficult ones;
- Be a constructive and facilitative participant.
