“The most important principle for designing lively virtual meetings is to see the design not as information design but as designing an experience.”

Let’s be honest, it’s hard to get people to pay attention in any meeting, but when people aren’t in the same room, it can be especially difficult. The lack of immediate response via eye contact and body language can be undermining, as feigning interest can be taking to new levels on Zoom. But why does this have to be the case? What systems and values can be put into place to ensure that leaders and their teams create voluntary engagement? How do you structure a meeting so people want to participate and how do you make it so interesting that the time flies by? How can human personalities and dynamics inform how we chair and facilitate a successful outcome? This programme looks at the fundamentals of human communication, from building trust to human psychometrics and from chairing meetings to building energy.
Our meeting programme is run in four stages
Stage 1. Our programme starts with your meeting. So we prefer to work with intact teams and we make it energetic and enjoyable. We ask that you do not “prepare” for this meeting just run it how you would normally run it. We just sit and listen
Stage 2. We create a culture of psychological safety and ask you for honest feedback.
Stage 3. We then measure the team against six rules which research has shown that when applied can increase levels of engagement by 86%. We identify the weak spots and areas of development.
Stage 4. We return to observe 3-6 months later to see how much the team has improved. We also challenge the team to take these skills and apply them in meetings outside your direct teams.
£3500 for an intact team for the whole process.
