You know what you need to achieve. The right people are in the room. You have plenty of coffee and snacks to keep the group energized. Your meeting is off to a great start, but how do you make sure that you get the results you need?

Humanergy starts meetings by reviewing the agenda and focusing on our mutual responsibilities for our gathering. We all agree to do one or more of these actions to make the meeting time worthwhile:

Give. What value are you giving to the meeting (your ideas, extreme listening, artful summary statements)?

Get. What value are you getting (decision so you can act, new idea, fresh perspective)?

Create. What value is created through bringing the group together (creative solutions, partnership on an important strategy, innovation to create something new)?

If you are in a meeting and realize you are not giving, getting or creating, why are you there?


We can make your meetings sizzle with energy and results. Talk to us today.
