Description of the Template and Guide

Seeking input from colleagues is different from the typical approach to group problem solving. Problem solving is a back-and-forth conversation. Seeking input from colleagues is a reflective exercise built around observing your colleagues discuss a problem or idea.

At the heart of this meeting agenda template design is the freedom to just listen—to not defend, or explain, or in any way resist the comments or ideas of colleagues. No one is trying to convince you of anything. You don’t have to respond to anything. You just get to observe and reflect as you listen to the thinking of the group.
