If the other participants in such meetings knew how best to respond to dysfunctional behavior, they presumably could minimize its impact and thereby derive more benefit from the meeting.

  • To enable the participants to identify dysfunctional behaviors in meetings
  • To allow the participants to plan and test coping strategies for dealing with such behaviors in meetings
