  • Welcome/good morningIntroduction
  • Take a moment to introduce yourself to everyone at your tableShare your most valuable takeaway from yesterday’s pre-conference sessions
  • The Solution Room is an innovative framework for sharing that will provide you with a brief but powerful personal consulting session on an issue or a topic of your choosing.Please locate the worksheets labeled Consultation Report Sheet and Personal Notes Sheet at this time. Any other worksheets may be set aside.You’ll note that the instructions for this activity are located on the back of the Personal Notes Sheet. Feel free to follow along as we review them together.Write your name at the top of each worksheet.The Consultation Report Sheet will be used throughout this session and will be passed to a neighbor who will facilitate and record your consulting session. The Personal Notes Sheet is for personal use only. It may be used to take notes, jot down ideas, record a-ha moments, etc. throughout the session. It will not be shared with anyone.At this time, select a timekeeper at your table. This individual will be responsible for watching the clock and ensuring conversation moves according to the allocated timeframes. Displaying a running time clock on the PowerPoint presentation will help us ensure everyone remains on track.
  • For three minutes, you will work quietly by yourself at your table.Using the Consultation Report Sheet, reflect on yesterday’s presentations and discussions.Identify a single workplace/meeting management challenge about which you would like guidance or advice from your tablemates.Write this challenge on the Consultation Report Sheet in the box labeled, “one challenge about which I would like guidance/advice.”[Advance this slide and allow the three minutes to count down.]

  • One participant is selected to start the consultation round.This individual (the recorder) reads aloud the challenge his or her neighbor wrote down on the Consultation Report Sheet (which he or she is now holding).Once the statement has been read aloud, the group is to provide feedback, suggestions and recommendations about this challenge for no more than five minutes (think: group consultation).During this time, the recorder who read the statement aloud should jot down as much information provided by the group as possible.This advice should be recorded on the Consultation Report Sheet in the section labeled “crowd sourced ideas that address this challenge.”Meanwhile, everyone else should engage actively in discussion.The person who wrote the statement is encouraged to listen, participate in discussion and take his or her own notes on the Personal Notes Sheet.[Advance this slide and allow the five minutes to count down.]
