The New Reality Problem-Solving and Effective Meetings Workshop

At VisionQuest, we believe organizational culture is all about behaviors — the behaviors that are expected, allowed, and rewarded. We also believe each employee at every level is paid to be a problem solver for the customer. In most organizations, behaviors and problem solving intersect in meetings.

On average, 17 million meetings occur in the United States every day. There is wide agreement that up to 50% of those meetings are unproductive, ineffective, often dysfunctional, and usually boring. This is where our workshop can help.

The New Reality Problem Solving and Effective Meetings Workshop improves dialog, outcomes, problem solving, and teams by:

  • Democratizing the problem-solving and decision-making processes
  • Installing the “operating system” of effective meetings
  • Equipping participants to develop and protect the best ideas in the room
  • Focusing every meeting on customer-centered outcomes
  • Increasing ownership by increasing input.

Developing High-Performing Teams

This workshop helps teams — new or existing, at any organization level — build the skills and processes to work together more efficiently while creating better outcomes for your customers. VisionQuest applies the 5-step pyramid process popularized by Patrick Lencioni in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. We add this model to VisionQuest’s experience in combining people, process, dialog, and problem solving for increased team effectiveness.
