Culture happens in meetings – Using purpose, rhythm and structure to break out of power dynamics and corporate shenanigans
What happens at YOUR meetings? Are they effective? Are shared decisions made only to be undermined in hallway conversations? Does the leader dominate the conversation every time? Are half the people texting and checking emails? Does everyone get air time? Have you ever asked - just why am I even at this meeting?
Why do we care so much about meetings? Whatever is happening at your company is playing out at your meetings. Power dynamics play out in meetings. The reinforcement of centralized control and authority and team dysfunctions have center stage at meetings. And meetings cost a lot of money in participants' time.
A company with a dynamic, vibrant culture has engaging meetings. A company with a culture of fear and dominance establishes and reinforces those behaviors at meetings. It's very subtle but so much of corporate shenanigans happen in our daily meetings.
Join us to hear about how setting up an operating rhythm of meetings and practices can help teams establish purpose, untangle decision-making, improve transparency, and foster collaboration. Learn about how having a team of facilitators helps establish psychological safety and gives everyone a voice and increases engagement in every part of the organization.
