Meeting Audit and Revamp
Revitalize and Transform Your Team's Meeting Culture
Not every meeting needs to be a workshop, but all meetings should be productive!
We help evaluate the sentiment around your meeting culture, collaboratively establish your meeting norms, and revamp meetings that aren't currently achieving their objectives.
"Of the 18 hours a week employees spend in meetings, they reported that nearly six hours were unproductive. That amounts to more than $25,000 in annual "wasted" investment in terms of direct monetary costs like salary and benefits and indirect costs such as focusing on tasks that boost the bottom line."

Our three-step approach is designed to enhance your meetings and extract maximum value from the time your team spends together.
Meeting Audit Workshop
We guide your team as you evaluate the effectiveness of your current meetings and establish your meeting norms.
We make recommendations to re-energize your meetings and help you meet your goals.
Coaching and Follow-up
We coach you through leading your first revamped meeting and conduct a follow-up to make any necessary tweaks.
Our standard package includes the meeting audit workshop and 2 revamped meetings of your choosing with coaching.
Do you already know a meeting you want to revamp? You can skip step 1! We offer tailored solutions that range from agenda design to the addition of interactive activities. We can help optimize regularly scheduled meetings such as: One-on-one Meetings, Agile Ceremonies, All Hands, Lunch & Learns, and Project Status Meetings.
You can also ask us about a standalone meeting norms workshop!

What Type of Meeting Is It?
We help categorize your meetings and consider alternative communication methods when appropriate.
It's About Balance
We assist you in evaluating the impact of scheduled meetings, ensuring a thoughtful balance between individual productivity and effective teamwork.
Ask Your Team
We gather feedback from your team to understand which meetings are working and which ones aren't.
We help establish meeting norms that promote efficient communication, enhance productivity, and encourage accountability.
Define the Purpose
We help ensure the meeting objectives are clearly explained in the meeting invite so invitees have clear expectations.
People over-invite to meetings because they don't want to leave anyone out, but this can do more harm than good. We help you think through who actually needs to be invited.
Do the Prep Work
To reach your objectives, you need an action-oriented agenda with topics that build on each other. We'll help create this and suggest interactive activities as appropriate.
