The Art of Convening, by Craig and Patricia Neal with Cynthia Wold, is a jewel of a book, which should resonate well with research consultants interested in mastering both the inner and outer dimensions of convening meetings. The Neals bring an enlightened approach to preparing for and conducting meetings that are authentic engagements – a genuine expression of what is “true” for convener and participants. The Art of Convening provides a holistic, perhaps “spiritual,” perspective on meetings that can inspire qualitative research consultants in working with research participants and client teams.
