Are you happy with your meetings?
It seems simple now that we’ve shown you that fancy diagram…doesn’t it?
If you found out that you’re not happy, what is this ‘something’ you will change?
Here’s our answer: we invite you to stop thinking. And start rethinking.
And when we say rethink we mean this:
Take all of the habitual ‘meeting things’ that you’ve been doing and flip them around, upside down, inside out.
Do it like this: Instead of looking at your stage and thinking, “This is where the presenter stands to speak to the audience”—look at your stage and look at your objectives and rethink, “This is where we bridge the gap between management and sales…” Then, rethink what that looks like. Is the stage round? Is the stage In the Round? Is the stage simply the floor? Do we even need a stage?
Ahhh…yes! Flipped around, upside down, inside out. Rethought.
Now, let’s rethink every moment of your meeting. When you rethink, everything has a reason. Objectives, creative, content, speaker personalities, company needs, production, scenic—they all align. They all make sense. They are all connected.
Your message isn’t just a font on a PowerPoint slide. It is seen, read, heard, felt, touched.
Now: your audience feels connected to the meeting, the company, the future —> your message and objectives become living, tangible and actionable —> energy fills the room —> there is a common goal.
There is a possibility for this meeting, and all of its rethink splendor, to change the face, the impact, the future of your company.
There’s even the possibility…of happiness.
