00:00-00:20 Welcome and Introductions
Kicking off with a quick overview of the agenda, the facilitator will ask participants to introduce themselves and share what they’d like to get from the session. This ensures understanding and engagement.
Interactivity: everyone will have a turn to speak to the room.
00:20-00:40 Meetings Upgrade
What’s the meetings culture at your company? We facilitate a discussion of pet peeves and preferences before layering in best practices to make your meetings run well (or to take them off the calendar altogether).
Sample topics: getting time back, stacking agendas, clarity around attendance, getting discussions back on track, etc.
Exercise: group discussion with real-time coaching.
00:40-01:10 Sharpening Your Practice
The best productivity tools and approaches are pragmatic and incremental – overly complicated fixes don’t take.
We share productivity hacks – and the fundamentals of time management.
Exercise: group discussion plus paired skills share
01:10-01:40 Email Refresh
In this quick and surprisingly fun exercise, we prompt your team to consider the company’s email culture and address any challenges – ultimately enhancing internal comms and saving time for all. (Remember, nobody likes it when you reply-all.)
Exercise: group discussion, paired email share.
01:40-01:55 Gauging and Building Trust
You can’t be productive if your culture lacks trust. In this practical trust-equation exercise, participants will share what trust means to them and learn the elements of trust at work, as well as practical ways to use them.
Exercise: popcorn discussion as facilitator walks through trust equation.
01:55-02:00 Re-cap and Action Planning
Quick re-cap of the session, plus discussion of what’s next. What will participants do differently? Facilitator offers follow-up info (i.e., “we’ll be emailing everyone a skills overview and links to further resources.”).
Would love to present a few slides and use flipchart for interactive exercises.
