People’s attention span is like an inverted pyramid. They have the most energy at the beginning of a meeting and the least at the end.
How do your meetings start and finish?
Do they take advantage of everyone’s energy at the beginning, tackling the trickiest problems and hard conversations, or does this happen at the end?
How might you design your meeting more like an hourglass, where you kick it off with a provocative opener and a spirited debate, followed by an energizer when attention slips so you can finish strong?
Love it or hate it, meetings aren’t going away. Even slight improvements in meetings can have a gigantic effect.
Thanks for caring!
