The secret is to get all the participants on the same page. We suggest that you download our Sample Discussion Guidelines and spend 30 minutes talking about them with your group.
We offer Sample Discussion Guidelines for Nonprofit Boards and Sample Discussion Guidelines for Local Government. Choose the one you need.
You have permission to modify these guidelines to suit your particular organization. Take what you like and ditch the rest! When everybody has a common understanding of how to discuss things, it will all run much more smoothly.
If you would like a copy of these guidelines in Microsoft Word format, email us and we’ll gladly provide it.
