Learn to make good meetings great

Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 4:30 p.m. — WOODSTOCK — We’ve all noticed that some meetings leave you feelings energized while others are draining. Conducting great meetings may require a focus on something that has nothing to do with the meeting’s explicit purpose. “Elevating the social field” is what a new generation of organizational theorists are calling this something. Come experience what this means in a hands-on workshop for those who lead or attend meetings of any kind on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 4:30 p.m. at Norman Williams Public Library in Woodstock.

Simon Dennis serves as a member of the Hartford Selectboard and as the founding director of the Center for Transformational Practice, a local nonprofit that works to advance effective social action through supporting the inner transformation of individuals and groups. Dennis will lead the discussion.

Norman Williams Public Library is located at 10 the Green, Woodstock. For more info, call 802-457-2295.
