Enabling divided groups to achieve results – together!
The increasingly interdependent world of the present and imminent future will see an urgent need for groups to come together and tackle wicked problems – those tough issues for which no simple solution exists. It is essential that such groups are able to create shared understanding and commitment to the hard work of finding and implementing workable solutions. This session explores a novel framework for doing so, and introduces practical techniques for face-to-face and virtual meetings that help groups build shared understanding and develop commitment to breakthrough results.
Participants will be introduced to and explore a number of techniques for creating shared understanding and commitment. They will practice using the Powernoodle tool, a proven cloud-based tool that enables groups to tackle divisive issues and build support and commitment for solutions to address wicked problems.
Participants will learn to:
1. Distinguish between the ways groups approach tame and wicked problems
2. Understand why groups need to develop shared understanding and commitment to tackle wicked problems
3. Review and practice using selected methods and techniques that build shared understanding and commitment
