Presented by Tony Faast, Cascade Outreach Institute

We've all had to try and solve problems with others - colleagues at work, partners, spouses, neighbors, kids, dogs, etc. These interactions all have their own trials and tribulations, some successful... and some... probably not so much. We've also had our share of task groups, advisory committees, self-directed teams, blue ribbon panels, endless committee assignments, etc... all essentially a group of well-meaning folks trying to solve a problem or complete a project.

As a result, Tony has developed some firm strategies and rules of conduct for successfully dealing with groups and the problem-solving elements they need in order to be successful. Therefore... (and in the spirit of David Letterman)... we will briefly discuss: "The Top Ten reasons groups can't solve problems!"

Tony is the head of the Cascade Outreach Institute where he and colleagues provide training and advice to agencies and groups in order to help people solve problems efficiently and effectively. He is a Wildlife Biologist, with over 30 years experience conducting over 100 public meetings and involvement activities with state and federal natural resource agencies. He has successfully facilitated many task groups, commissions, public meetings, strategy sessions and collaborative efforts, often under trying circumstances.
