Recipe Take a group of less than 20 people (17 today) made up of Principals, spouses and senior managers. Invite them to a good quality hotel for Friday night dinner and Saturday. At 09:00 on Saturday morning, sit on your bar stool at the front of the room, with laptop and projector at the ready. Not a Powerpoint slide in sight. No fixed agenda. Flip-chart handy. Ask a question: “How can I help?” Wait for the questions. Answer them and also facilitate the exchange of experiences and views from those attending. Result A dynamic day of discovery for all concerned. By 17:00 today, some people will be making BIG decisions about their future strategy and tactics.
