Ava Butler: Organizational Development Consultant, Coach, and Author of Mission Critical Meetings: 81 Practical Facilitation Techniques
Inclusion Card: Parking Lot
Noel and Ashley are joined by Ava Butler, author of Mission Critical Meetings: 81 Practical Facilitation Techniques to talk about the Parking Lot card in the Inclusion Deck. Using this card stores an idea for later and tells everybody that the discussion is important but off-topic, and we can come back to it later. Ava explains how having a parking lot helps meetings stay on topic -- assuming you've set a topic in the first place. Ava also shares her worst and best meeting stories.
