Tom, over at Management Skills, offers up this great meeting turnaround strategy in his post called, Simple Exercise.
Check it out.
I like that he is offering managers a concrete example of how they can get a languishing meeting back on track and in high gear. You need to be willing to be direct and strong, but sometimes that just what’s gotta be done to get people in the game.
His request for 12 questions in six minutes is a bit agressive, but I am guessing this is a facilitator technique to keep people from dawdling. 🙂 Am I right Tom?
