How can I make meetings more meaningful?
Experience and research tells us employees in all levels of an organization spend valuable time in unproductive meetings. We've developed several strategies to use prior to, during, and after meetings to improve the flow, increase the impact, and reduce wasted time.
Does everyone know the goal?
Most of us have a hard time remembering the important goals and strategies we’re responsible for achieving because they aren’t communicated in ways that stick. One of the most effective ways to help our teams really know what we’re asking them to achieve is to draw clear connections for them.
Build positive and productive thinking
The way leaders construct questions will either open or narrow minds. To get more of what we want out of our teams and increase positive outcomes, it is important for leaders to ask questions that encourage high levels of reflection and creative thinking.
