PRACTICAL GUIDE TO CONFERENCE LEADERSHIP.
MORGAN, JOHN S.
THIS GUIDE TO CONFERENCE LEADERSHIP BEGINS WITH A CHAPTER ON LEADERSHIP PSYCHOLOGY AND GOES ON TO PRESENT OUTLINES FOR RUNNING CONFERENCES. THE LEADER PREPARES FOR THE MEETING BY COLLECTING FACTS ON THE SUBJECT, PREPARING AN OUTLINE, KNOWING THE PARTICIPANTS, MAKING PHYSICAL ARRANGEMENTS, AND WRITING THE TENTATIVE SUMMARY. IN THE CONFERENCE HE USES SUCH DISCUSSION TOOLS AS THE QUESTION AND VISUAL AIDS AND HELPS THE GROUP SUMMARIZE. INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING A RECORD OF THE CONFERENCE ARE GIVEN. DEALING WITH PROBLEM PEOPLE (INCLUDING THE POOR TALKERS, THE DISSENTERS, AND THE UNDISCIPLINED) INVOLVES SPOTTING THEM IN ADVANCE, MANAGING THE MEETING TO AVOID DEVELOPING THEM, AND KNOWING TECHNIQUES FOR COPING WITH THEM. DIRECTIONS FOR LEADING THE FOUR TYPES OF CONFERENCES--PLANNING, INFORMATIVE, PROBLEM SOLVING, AND TRAINING CONFERENCES--ARE GIVEN. IN A CHAPTER ON TEACHING BY THE CONFERENCE METHOD, TRAINING SESSIONS ON WORK, SUPERVISORY, AND MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES, AND EVALUATION ARE OUTLINED, INCLUDING USE OF THE CASE STUDY METHOD, ROLE PLAYING, AND REFRESHER AND SENSITIVITY TRAINING.
