Making Corporate Meetings Effective / Как сделать корпоративные собрания более эффективными?

 pencils.jpg

Imagine yourself entering some corporate or business meeting. There you are – sitting in the room, while someone in the ”expert” or ”chief” role speaks to everyone in the room. There you are, not aligned with that person’s mission or vision. There you are, feeling apart from the process. There you are, wasting your energy with a little desire of being there. There you are, hearing what is going wrong and what you or your team has to change or improve. How are you feeling?

Are you feeling a great connection to the meeting? Are you feeling enthusiasm about being present at the meeting? Are you fully present at such meetings? Are you deeply tuned in and listening with your heart and your head? Are you inspired to co-create, participate, and contribute? Or, are you ready to fall asleep, or count boring minutes?

Consensus: Is that panacea for the team?

e1158260245.jpg
Consensus is the appropriate decision strategy for the most important team decisions. Every member of your team really needs to understand what consensus means indeed. A common misconception of consensus is that it means everyone strictly agrees with the decision.

If a team adopted this definition as the basis for all of its decisions, what would happen?

– The team would never be able to make a decision.

– The team members would jump to a decision too quickly.

– Unimportant matters would be over-discussed. Fortsätt läsa

When was your last team celebration? Have you been way too busy to bother? Sometimes we get so caught up in day-to-day work that we don’t take the time to step back and celebrate success. Some teams may even consider team celebrations as ”silly.”

It’s critical to celebrate success if you want your team to maintain their high performance. Successes are the ”motivating fuel” that keeps all of us pushing toward achieving the ”bigger and better” goals that we set.

What types of team interaction and discussions normally occur on a day-to-day basis with your team? If you’re like most businesses, it’s along the lines of the following:

– What’s going wrong with the current project.

An R&D Team Will Boost Your Success

There’s another one team building idea I want to share with You.

One of the best ways to ensure that your planning is successful is to create your own R&D (research and development) team. All truly successful businesses have departments or teams specifically dedicated to finding and developing new and better ways to do whatever it is the company does, so why not you?

At it’s most basic, and R&D team a small group of friends that you bribe into helping you with problems by offerings of pizza and beer. At it’s most complex, it can be a worldwide network of e-quaintences who have signed on to receive email newsletters from you outlining the projects you are working on, and who in return offer feedback or creative help from hundreds of different perspectives.

This article is about teambuilding tips and tricks that relate to team meetings.

You’re at a meeting with key staff. You want some new ideas to address the topic. Looking around at this group of creative, ambitious, bright people, you say, ”Let’s get some fresh ideas on this. Who’s got something?”

Suddenly,you feel like the high-school teacher who has asked a question about the homework no one did. People find their notepads fascinating, others fumble in their briefcases muttering things no one can hear, still others stare into space seeming lost in thought. No one is looking at you.

What’s going on?

There are many reasons for this unproductive response to your query. In my many years of working with groups, I’ve found the reason most often is one of these:

1. People are afraid of looking like idiots in front of bosses and peers. Fortsätt läsa

Make You Expert Team Working Effective

img-089-is107-077.jpg

As a freelance writer myself, I know how important it is to have and keep track of experts to interview. Here are a few teambuilding tips and tricks on the topic :

I always emphasize to clients and seminar participants how important it is to start and maintain a ”Team 100” list – people to support you in whatever you are doing. It is also equally important to start and maintain ”Expert 100” list. For a writer this is almost mandatory whether fiction or nonfiction. However, even if you are a business owner or an employee it is just as important to have this list. One of the experts might be your next employer or a friend of one.

What is an Expert 100 list? Group of people who are experts in their careers who you know a little or a lot that you feel comfortable enough to contact them if and when you have questions in their area. Fortsätt läsa

Why Is Assembly Strongly Required For Station Teams?

There is a useful hint for team builders:

“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”    

– Vincent ”Vince” Lombardi (1913-1970), athletic coach

Too often teams aren’t assembled. They just happen. A project comes along and a team is assigned to work it. The group gathers and attempts to figure out a solution, but trouble starts brewing almost at once. Only some of the people do any work. Some people don’t get along. Meetings are frequent and mind numbing. No one is quite sure what the assignment actually is.

In corporate team building, well-assembled teams are called Station Teams. Station teams are based on what we know to be true about people and organizations, and are aligned with the principles of WYSINWYG (what you see is never what you get), balance and simplicity. The constituent parts of station team assembly are size, civics, and work. Each of the parts is important in its own right, but taken together, they provide for continuous and effective team operation. Their assembly optimizes the chances for successful and effective teamwork. Fortsätt läsa
