Evolve Your Meetings™

Evolving your meetings and the people who lead them

Really excellent meetings do more than just get the job done or make sure everyone has a chance to speak.

They don’t sacrifice efficiency for participation, or stifle engagement in favor of structure. Instead, they bring together the best techniques for creating belonging, getting buy-in and achieving outcomes.

And they aren’t slave to oppressive structures or limiting decision rules. They use enough structure to provide clarity and direction, while offering space for vital creativity that liberates people to innovate and perform at their best.

(R)evolutionized meetings are energizing, enjoyable, and enlivening—which makes them more effective at producing meaningful outcomes. 

And now, the demands of Covid Times: remote work, social distancing, new work site practices, have accelerated the urgency to implement new and better ways of working and teaming, of meeting, communicating and collaborating.  

A lot of people can facilitate okay meetings.

Facilitating really excellent meetings starts with a solid foundation in meeting essentials—structure, process, purpose, and design. And it comes to life when the meeting owner/facilitator can relax, be creative, and invite others to do the same.

Evolve Your Meetings™ teaches the must-have skills and techniques for anyone who cares about leading more effective, productive and enjoyable meetings – whether together in virtual or physical space.
