Marvin Weisbord and Sandra Janoff, creators of Future Search and co-founders of the Future Search Network, have just published a book entitled DON’T JUST DO SOMETHING, STAND THERE! Ten Principles for Leading Meetings that Matter. The book shares what Weisbord and Janoff have learned in 20 years of leading meetings together in cultures around the world. The principles in the book apply to all kinds of meetings. (You can order the book now at Amazon.com for only $13.57.)
They’re also holding an advanced facilitating training called Leading Meetings That Matter that’s based on the book. The training will be held October 14-16, 2007 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania (outside of Philadelphia, PA).

The seminar, which integrates system change and personal growth theories, is for experienced leaders who want to increase their capacity to help large, diverse groups stay task-focused and accomplish ambitious goals.
