Run an open forum meeting without dissolving into chaos
Strictly run meetings many times become a sounding board for the extroverts in the room while the introverts work out information quietly in their own heads. Conversely, an open forum meeting can result in a chaotic free-for-all where nothing gets accomplished. Culture, language, disposition, and politics are all barriers to obtaining the unique contribution of all participants. This is not a discussion about how to facilitate a meeting, but rather how to use different strategies to create a more democratic space where everyone is heard.
