Chat questions

As usual, questions will come from the @OpenOrgBook Twitter account. During the hour-long conversation, we hope to discuss:

  • What does open and inclusive decision making look like?
  • What's the difference between an open decision-making process and a closed one?
  • What's the most important benefit of being transparent in your decision-making process?
  • What's the most important benefit of being inclusive as you make decisions?
  • What do you find most challenging about open decision-making? What are the barriers to practicing it?
  • When is the best time to bring people into a decision-making process?
  • Should leaders still include people in the decision-making process when they already know the best course to take? How?
  • Have you ever changed your mind about the "right" solution as a result of opening your decision-making process?
  • What strategies can leaders use to incorporate voices they don't hear into the decision-making process?
  • What materials and resources do you recommend to leaders looking to practice open decision-making?

We hope you can join us March 30 to explore the ways making open decisions can improve engagement in your organization.
