Moments of Impact: How to Design Strategic Conversations That Accelerate Change

By Chris Ertel, Lisa Kay Solomon
Two leading experts on designing strategic conversations unveil a simple, creative process that allows teams to tackle their most challenging issues.
In our fast-changing world, leaders are increasingly confronted by messy, multifaceted challenges that require collaboration to resolve. But the standard methods for tackling these challenges meetings packed with data-drenched presentations or brainstorming sessions that circle back to nowhere just don t deliver.
Great strategic conversations generate breakthrough insights by combining the best ideas of people with different backgrounds and perspectives. In this book, two experts crack the code on what it takes to design creative, collaborative problem-solving sessions that soar rather than sink.
Drawing on decades of experience as innovation strategists and supported by cutting-edge social science research, dozens of real-life examples, and interviews with well over 100 thought leaders, executives, and fellow practitioners they unveil a simple, creative process that leaders and their teams can use to unlock solutions to their most vexing issues. The book also includes a Starter Kit full of tools and tips for putting the book s core principles into practice."


    REVIEW QUOTES

So many times organizations go to the outside to develop and refine their strategic plans when the answers lie internally. "Moments of Impact" gives you a roadmap to unlock solutions that are literally in the room. It provides powerful examples and a step by step guide to creating intense engagement and encourages diverse and unique points of view. This leads to a powerful shared vision and strategic plan coupled with a pragmatic execution plan. And, as a bonus, it is a great bonding experience for all involved.--George Borst, CEO of Toyota Financial Services

They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I say that's also a pretty good definition of the typical business meeting. If you'd like to short-circuit the meeting loop and energize your team's ability to solve real problems and create new visions, then "Moments of Impact" is the book you need.--Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive
