‘THE YELLOW ROOM’, your virtual roundtable with specialist consultants, on-demand.
A service tailored to put world class advice at your fingertips.
Interactive sessions are the future, ranging from roundtables, to creative Q&A forums, or other novel formats. They are a breath of fresh air in decision making, representing true diversity of thought.
Roundtables are a gathering of about a dozen interested people, often with similar interests or novel perspectives. They last about 90 minutes or so with a host keeping the discussion flowing.
Our One Circle Yellow Room provides the opportunity to hold virtual interactive roundtables with freelance HR consultants on-demand. You can now gather online with one or more consultants from the One Circle community and for structured discussion(s) around various business topics or problems.
Business leaders now have access to deep advice, on any topic, without leaving the comfort of their own surroundings.
Through One Circle’s Yellow Room it is also possible to book private executive coaching or personal advisory sessions, like getting professional advice on a salary offer from a prospective new employer. Sometimes business leaders just need a sounding board, a partner to brainstorm with.
Roundtables provide access to real-time in-depth market analysis, second opinions on business proposals or board submissions, advice on real business problems, and market insights on how other employers deal with common business challenges (all within the bounds of preserving confidentiality).
Tips to get the most out of your roundtable.
The client hosts their own roundtables and determines the agenda for attendees to follow. It is their best interest to get the maximum return from the gathering.
The discussion starts with the clearest focus and clear precision on the topic of discussion and expected outcome of the discussion. This might be a particular problem for the industry, or a department within a company. There should be clarity in terms of the use of related information after the event concludes.
Having a concise topic fuels a productive conversation and the host directs the conversation to the required depth of discussion.
A comprehensive agenda assists in guiding the discussion and helps ensure all discussion points are covered.
Clarity of thought
Clarity and certainty of thought is paramount during the discussion. Supporting each piece of advice with best practice or practical examples makes the discussion more valuable.
Owning the discussion
The client, or host, needs to actively direct the discussion to get the most value from the time and to progress against the agenda.
The key focus is not width but rather depth. A set of questions in addition to the agenda helps the roundtable stay on track and focused.
Clients can choose to invite others to participate with them in the roundtable. In a roundtable environment quality always trumps quantity. Invitees should be capable of adding value to the discussion, aligned with the agenda and have clarity on the focus of the discussion.
The roundtable discussions should bring fresh ideas and an unbiased perspective to unique challenges and opportunities. When you hold a virtual interactive roundtable with freelance HR consultants on-demand, you bring in perceptive and experienced consultants who are able to point out unanticipated obstacles and speed bumps not otherwise considered.
Roundtables and interactive sessions are potentially richly disruptive to business decision-making. Unleashing a wealth of diverse perspectives and unique insights is distinctly possible when handled professionally and discreetly.
