Gathering together great minds to brainstorm the next groundbreaking ideas is not a new concept. In Fact Multifamilypro has been doing it for 28 years.

BEYOND CONSULTATION AND CONFERENCES…

Under the current scheme of things, the primary method of learning and problem solving lies in workshops, conferences, consultations, and materials related to our primary roles. All must usually be relatively structured resources directed to goals, tasks, and immediate problem resolution. Each of these addressees the very real needs. The think tank process endeavors to step beyond practical needs and…

  • challenge advanced or restlessly creative leaders
  • provide powerful tools for dealing with deeper and longer-range issues
  • develop holistic thinking patterns
  • stimulate creativity in a field which today seems far more concerned with standardization, and
  • renew the spirit of the participants.

What Can Be Expected? Unrealistic exceptions can poison any process, especially think tanks. From prior think tank participants, the following are some reasonable, expected outcomes:

  • General mental challenge
  • Consciousness raising
  • Shift in focus/new approaches/fresh perspectives
  • Creative ideas
  • New and better questions and problem statements
  • Renewal and rededication

Climate: If there is one hard and fast rule about our Think Tank it is: Establish a suitable climate!!! Key elements include:

  • Atmosphere  is casual and attire informal.
  • Meeting place is  free from interruptions, quiet, relaxed, comfortable, and pleasing to the senses. We do away with barriers; participants should be comfortable sitting in an open circle – no tables.
  • An understanding that participants are both students and teachers. Each brings his or her own expertise and experience to share openly, coupled with the open-mindedness to learn and receive.
  • Understanding, tolerance and support of ideas; no idea or question is stupid. Genuine risk-taking cannot take place unless there is a firm and confirmed feeling of safety in expression of personal values and ideas.
  • Confidentiality is key to success. Participants must have the freedom to speak openly without fear of repercussions.

The Multifamily Think Tank is”Beyond the individual…” attendees must have the willingness to deliberately sacrifice relatively quick, concrete answers and solutions in favor of longer-term benefits and visionary ideas for a larger future of this small group.

Topics and Challenges:
