Avoiding bogging down

Min BasadurWhenever a good group suddenly lapses into “going round in circles” or adversarial discussions (however unintended or disguised ), a simple process intervention called “debriefing” always works. In debriefing, a group pauses to self-correct by getting out of content and examining its process to intercept further slippage.
MinSight: Next time it happens, try asking the questions “What are we saying or doing that is helping our process?  What are we saying or doing that is hindering our process?” and “ What have we learned about our process?’
