I understand the challenges team leaders and managers have when trying to create a dynamic and engaging gathering. You’re faced with a challenge to bring people together and engage them. You are tasked to create a sense of excitement, create an urgency for improvement. But then, the planning begins to slip back to traditional patterns of tight schedules, over-packed content and endless presentations after presentations. Are these types of meetings really creating the energy and desired change needed?
MOST LIKELY NOT!
Chances are, its because the last meeting you attended was framed up the same way millions of meetings are framed up. Too much content for such a short bit of time, pages and pages of text copy stuffed into a ring binder and endless rehashing of the same issues from previous meetings. Hours, if not, days of productivity lost because the same old formats are the safest solution and require no preparation. Unfortunately, this is what has become the acceptable normality in the world of meetings and business gatherings.
THERE IS A BETTER WAY!
Let them see the ideas. By incorporating visual translation as a form of collective idea gathering and high-level information capturing, attendees are given an artifact that creates interest, retention and powerful recall of shared thoughts and details.
We’ve all seen this. In the end, after the last attendee leaves the gathering, the trash cans are full of what was once thought to be valuable by those presenting the information. Office shelves are stuffed with dusty, unopened binders from past meetings and the energy once created, fades quickly.
Value is determined, not by what we deem of value, rather by what people find important and remember.
You, as a team leader, have the ability to make your gathering exciting, engaging and valuable.
STOP DOING WHAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE DONE AND EXPECT SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
Become the planning hero of the next meeting or planning session.
