Group Dynamics – When Group Conflict Creates Problems

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

This is a really short message! But if you ever have problems with conflict in your team meetings or other aspects of group dynamics, you will want to read it carefully.

You probably know I do a lot of facilitation of strategic planning and conference or group meetings, which may be why I am often asked about group dynamics and facilitation skills by some of the executives and team leaders I coach.

Now I know it is not always possible to bring in an external facilitator (although I hope you will call me on 03-9859 3924 whenever you need one) so as a leader, it is important for you to develop the skills required to manage group dynamics and handle group conflict effectively.

Anyway, I have just finished writing an article on three critical aspects of group dynamics a meeting facilitator must manage and I thought I would share it with you.

You can read about it here: Group Dynamics

Have a read and let me know what you think.

There are a lot of different things to balance when you are facilitating an important meeting, including group conflict, so I hope it helps you to manage all aspects of group dynamics better.

PS Watch out for some of the great things we’ve got planned for this year. I’ll share the first one with you soon.
