The best time to get your team to shift into their highest place of potential to deliver results is when they meet together.
Make sure you're ready to guide them.
The stakes are high when you need to establish a vision or make a decision as a team. It's one of the reasons you go 'off-site' to get away and focus.
99.99% of people we’ve polled never had a class on how to run a meeting.
Lots of leaders and boards use their instinct to set up their gatherings. They think the president will run the meeting, or that the group self-govern and figure it out as they go.
And guess what…THEY CAN…But that’s NOT what makes business team progress effective.
It is the ability to shift the inner condition of your team to get them into the best place of potential despite cycles and patterns that keep them from delivering the results they are capable of.
The single best place you can control this activity is when your team gathers.
From your team’s perspective…GREAT meetings, off-sites and retreats motivate them. Good meetings are what's expected. But consider…
Is there anything more frustrating at work than a gathering that doesn’t produce progress?
Did your engagement and trust increase or decrease when you perceived a lack of preparation or had doubt in the process?
Someone is going to facilitate your session whether it’s with or without your intent. Which do you choose?
