How to have better meetings – Sam Bradd’s 2018 round-up…

We are lucky to have Sam Bradd among us here on the coast.  He sets the bar for those who work in alternative, serious ways, and is a tireless, compassionate, generative friend and colleague to a whole community.   After years of wanting to, I finally got a chance to work with him, as I facilitated a small group in planning and he handled the graphics…  it was one of the best dances I’ve been part of.  I’ll post the graphics one day.  He’s one of the people I could work with all the time.  Sam has collected a host of great graphic recorders and facilitators and you can see his work and meet them on his site, Drawing Change.  

For the last couple of years, Sam has put together really fun and interesting collections of ideas from his network of facilitators and graphic process workers (including me).  This year’s prompt was “In 2019, we wish more meetings would…”   Click the image below to see some great ideas.  Can you guess which one is mine from the graphic?  Do you have other ideas about how to have better meetings?  What might a better meeting look like for you?

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
