I experienced a profound difference in how I change things after reading this article on short meetings. It wasn’t so much to do with better use of meeting time but more so with my approach to exploring ideas and seeking consensus for change.
Instead of waiting for a meeting to share an idea with everyone, I experimented with lightly socialising ideas on a 1-2-1 basis. The conversations were much easier and creative when we met as a group to make a decision that led to some form of change. I became a big fan of nemawashi and have used it ever since.
What have you tried that helps you and others change? What challenges do you face when it comes to implementing change? Is there something you’ve seen or read about that you want to try but haven’t yet done so?
Now could be a good time to give them a go and write about the experience.
