Materials

  • None

Instructions

Before

Type of group issue:

  • A highly politicized and fairly polarized (yet congenial) group
  • A recognized lack of collaboration and partnership
  • Votes are split along predictable lines
  • Common ground that seems to get built keeps shifting
  • The idea of a vision blocks progress

Type of Facilitator-Client Relationship: high trust


During

  • For any number of reasons, it's possible the group is hung up by the concept of a vision (or another concept or term)
  • Reframe it via another mechanism that will allow the group to move forward in its compass-setting and decision-making.
  • Ask:  "What do they need to agree on that will guide them in making important decisions?"

After

Follow-Up Required: Moving to the next step.

Potential pitfalls: There is a more profound issue that is blocking the group that is not on the table.
