First Event Information

Title: Meetings Beyond Logistics: Principles, Practices & Play™

Date: Tuesday, September 20, 2011, 12:29 pm EDT

Duration: 01:30:09

Presenter: Joan Eisenstodt


Sponsored by:

Dan Pink, in “A Whole New Mind,” says: “Today the defining skills of the previous era – the ‘left brain’ capabilities that powered the Information Age – are necessary but no longer sufficient. And the capabilities we once disdained or thought frivolous – the ‘right brain’ qualities of inventiveness, empathy, joyfulness and meaning – increasingly will determine who flourishes and who flounders.”

Meetings rarely exhibit inventiveness or joy. Meetings have for years looked and felt and sounded like the worst of the school classes any of us ever experienced: rooms set in rows, low lighting and rarely windows, and little time for discussion to clarify information or to make comments to express thoughts and opinions or to interact with others.

In a world where an appreciation for different kinds of intelligences and learning styles is flourishing, we can do better. We can begin to change meetings to be inclusive of different learning styles and to even be FUN!

From participation in this session, you will:

  • Develop a greater awareness of your own and others’ learning styles.
  • Advance your ability to create different learning environments and delivery formats.
  • Create steps to take to move meetings you plan or host to a new level of inventiveness.

**Recommended reading to stimulate thinking for the session: “A Whole New Mind” by Dan Pink, “Seating Matters” by Dr. Paul Radde and “Learning Meetings and Conferences in Practice” by Ib Ravn and Steen Elsborg.
