The best way to reduce conflict in contentious meetings is to strategically use meeting procedure or meeting processes to guide you. Taking the person out of the situation and looking at the process instead is the most effective way to reduce conflict.
If you think you’re not quite up to chairing a meeting like this yet, then let an expert chair it for you. An impartial chair has no hidden agenda and is focused on the group coming together for the greatest good of the organisation.
David Julian Price is the chair of choice at contentious meetings due to his Meeting Procedures knowledge and advanced communication skills. His knowledge base is solid as he has written 4 books on meeting procedures. He knows his M’s and P’s.
Traditional meeting procedures may have been written a long time ago, but they’re still used today in a less formal way to suit modern times. In fact, David has blended the must-have formal meeting procedures with the more relaxed modern way of leading meetings to ensure every meeting runs smoothly and efficiently.
He knows when to use formal rules and when to relax them for optimum discussion to move towards a resolution that is the will of the group.
