There are so many different types of meeting and so the need to have them run as effective spaces for all personality types is vital.

People are different but all have the need to belong.

We all need to have space to share our thoughts knowing we will not be interrupted.

The extrovert may need a structure, a framework to know they will have time to share as much as the introvert, who will find it difficult if there is no designated time for them.

Why do we need to change the way we run our business meetings?

 

    • Too many people have experienced meetings where they are ignored and talked over.
    • Too many meetings are run by the most senior person whose voice is the only voice in the room (Online or face to face)
    • The loudest personality in the room overwhelms everything.
    • The agenda is pre-set and there is no room for discussion
    • Badly run meetings impact the bottom line due to talent feeling stifled
    • Introverted talent is crushed and voiceless
    • Vision is limited
    • The great resignation flourishes and people continue to leave in droves.
    • Toxic culture
    • There is a fertile void where people are not listened to
    • Inequality
    • Extroverted talent do not have their needs met when they are silenced.
    • Client conversation is often angry and accusatory
    • There is no understanding of different view due to the defensive stance taken.
