When you are running an open space discussion there is often a follow up by each group at the end. Normally each team presents some kind of actions that they are going to implement afterwards. BUT! I recently did one simple thing as facilitator. When discussions came to an end and it was time to present actions i said:
Ok, now I donâ€™t expects to listen to actions suggested by each group, but obviously everybody wants to see the results of those actions. So letâ€™s skipt talking part and next time we meet each group presents results of their actions.
Got very positive comments from the participants. Remember!Â Actions are not about talking, itâ€™s about doing! So, donâ€™t present actions, just get the f*** out from the meeting room and DO that!
p.s. what 2 seconds improvements do you make?
