Ever been in a strategic planning workshop that you knew was doomed 5 minutes in? It’s not that people don’t want to do the right thing. It’s not that we don’t want to cooperate, either. So what makes it so hard to lead a group to agree on a problem, visualize a solution, and move in sync toward a goal? We’re all adults after all—you’d think we covered the “plays well with others” thing back in kindergarten.

In this session, we’ll take tools and games often used to plan websites and use them as a laboratory for studying the art of facilitation. I’ll share some of the not-so-obvious techniques I’ve learned over 20+ years of experimentation, failure, and success in herding cats of all types and sizes.
