    You might use some principles of appreciative inquiry (discover & dream phase), related to Per’s suggestion. Instead of a taboo or a myth, you could focus on the positive side: what makes the new situation tick? What do you think is the best part of it? And what could we do to make more of that? Working appreciative might prevent the session ending up in a negative “everything’s already been decided” mood.

    To close this one out …. In the end – for all the reasons above – I avoided the change decision and the process already underway and instead looked at desired and undesired behavior when faced with difficult challenges and how this influences the team. I did dodge the “change” bullet of course but there were some very nice reflections in the end on how just being negative was not going to solve anything and we ended up in a “proactive” frame of mind …

    Thanks to you all ..
