<b>Context</b><br>
I would like to conclude the meeting with a bit of a reflection. We will look at two aspects, the content of the meeting and the process we used to do the meeting.<br><br>
<b>Steps</b><br>
<b>The content of the meeting</b><br>
1. What was the intent of the meeting?<br>
2. What words or phrases catch your attention in all that we've created here?<br>
3. Which part of this is the most exciting?<br>
4. Which part is the "scariest"?<br>
5. Which part of this is the most urgent?<br>
6. Which part of this is the most important?<br>
7. What kinds of difference will this make?<br>
8. What are your next steps? or What part of this will you work on?<br>
<b>Experience/Process</b>
9. Imagine you are replaying a videotape of this event. What scenes do you see? <br>
10. What was a high point for you? A low point (or where did you struggle)?<br>
11. What has been the significance of this meeting for this group? How are you different as a result of this event?<br>
12. What is your personal commitment as a result of this meeting? or How would you summarise this experience in a phrase or image?
