Forge a New Meeting Culture: Two Engaging Tools to Create Productive Meetings

When the pressure is on to create consensus, make decisions, formulate solutions, or move critical initiatives forward, you need tools to help you make the most of your all-important meeting time. 

XPLANE’s new method cards feature easy-to-implement activities you can use at the beginning, middle, and end of your meetings or workshops to provide the structure and inspiration you need to gain traction on your most pressing objectives. 

Designed to complement our workshop planning canvas, practical, fun, and thought-provoking activities will help you quickly plan meetings and workshops that will engage your teams, get them talking, and help them move forward. 

In this webinar, our expert facilitators showed you how to use these versatile cards to create memorable, purpose-driven meetings that forever change the landscape of your organization’s meeting culture.

In this webinar, attendees learned:

  • How to use an Opening, Exploring, and Closing framework—what we call the double-sided pencil—to design workshops that generate excitement and move your goals forward
  • How to mix and match activities from the method cards to streamline planning, create structure, and set the stage for accomplishing you objectives
