The Beckenhauer team was very
excited when we learned we had been
selected to assist the Norfolk Public
Schools in their efforts to do some long
overdue repairs, maintenance and
upgrades to nearly all the district's
buildings. Beckenhauer Construction has
a history with the public school district
that spans many generations, so it was
rewarding to be selected to assist them

To encourage creative thinking and
idea generation when you're in charge
of a meeting:
• Ask open-ended questions. Participants will have to answer with more
than just a "yes" or "no."
• Encourage people to continue-even
if they start to back off because they're
repeating points made earlier.
• Paraphrase ideas when someone
makes an unclear point.
• Don't force your views on others.
Always remain neutral. A dominant
tone will repress discussion.
• Make sure everyone contributes to
the discussion. Direct questions to
people who haven't spoken. And ask
for examples and elaboration
• Have opposing sides state one
another's opinions when conflict
• Direct questions to other people-or
ask to hear another view-when one
person tries to dominate the discussion.
• Say to the last person who spoke,
"Tell me more."
