During

Context

I would like to conclude the meeting with a bit of a reflection. We will look at two aspects, the content of the meeting and the process we used to do the meeting.


Steps

The content of the meeting

1. What was the intent of the meeting?

2. What words or phrases catch your attention in all that we've created here?

3. Which part of this is the most exciting?

4. Which part is the "scariest"?

5. Which part of this is the most urgent?

6. Which part of this is the most important?

7. What kinds of difference will this make?

8. What are your next steps? or What part of this will you work on?

Experience/Process
9. Imagine you are replaying a videotape of this event. What scenes do you see?

10. What was a high point for you? A low point (or where did you struggle)?

11. What has been the significance of this meeting for this group? How are you different as a result of this event?

12. What is your personal commitment as a result of this meeting? or How would you summarise this experience in a phrase or image?



Conclusion

End the meeting as it is normally done.

After

Follow-Up Required: none

Usual or Expected Outcomes: An understanding of how the meeting went, and appreciation of the process.

Potential pitfalls: people may want to discuss problems they had with the meeting and so more time may be necessary.
