Inclusion Card: Opinion
Today Ashley and Noel are joined by Michael Donnelly of the FWD collective to discuss the Opinion card, which limits the number of times a leader in the meeting can express an opinion, as opposed to facilitating or asking questions. Michael talks about how a facilitator can manage a meeting and shares her best and worst meeting stories (the best story involves politeness).
