5 Ways to PERK UP Your Next Meeting!

We've heard it all before. "This could have been an email", "I could have used that time for something more productive", or "I don't understand what the point of the meeting was..."- and there may be some truth behind that!

It’s time to perk up your team meetings! Why? Because statistics show that 67% of meetings fail and according to executives, 45% of meetings serve no purpose.

We’ve heard it all before. “This could have been an email”, “I could have used that time for something more productive”, or “I don’t understand what the point of the meeting was…”- and there may be some truth behind that!

So let’s raise the bar and create an experience that matters to people with our “5 Ways to Perk up your Next Team Meeting!”.  

1. FLEX

Ease employees back into work by offering a flexible transition period. Allow them to adjust their schedules during the first few days after the holidays.

This can help employees manage personal tasks that may have piled up during their time off, reducing stress and allowing for a smoother reintegration into work responsibilities.

2. ENERGIZE!

Engage, decrease tension, and energize participants with a quick icebreaker.

This can be as simple as sharing an emoji that represents your current mood or a quick stretching session!

3. EYES ON THE PRIZE

Ensure your agenda clearly outlines the meeting’s objectives & what you aim to achieve. It helps employees understand the purpose and stay focused.

Additionally, keep your meeting concise and on-track. Shorter, focused meetings between 30-45 mins are more likely to maintain energy levels and keep participants engaged.

4. MIX IT UP!

Boost engagement and participation by incorporating a mix of presentations, discussions, and interactive tools into your meeting.

The change in structure helps to maintain focus and attention, leading to a more productive and enjoyable meeting for everyone.

5. ASK & RECIEVE

Encourage questions or feedback at the end of the meeting. This clarifies information and lets the team express concerns.

Remain available for a few minutes after the meeting, where people can ask questions they may be hesitant to ask in front of the whole group.
