As a veteran facilitator trained in conflict resolution, Priya Parker has participated in peace processes in the Arab world and led meetings with everyone from college students to U.S. federal officials. Her new book, "The Art of Gathering," draws on those experiences and research into meet ups as varied as flash mobs and funerals to offer tips for adding meaning to gatherings -- both the quotidian and once in a lifetime. Parker joins Forum to discuss why risk taking and exclusion are keys to better meetings and what you can do to add a sense of purpose to your get-togethers.
