Is your team disengaging now more than ever? Are they leaving their video turned off on Zoom meetings, or not responding as quickly to emails? Are they exhausted and struggling? Chances are, you’ve answered yes — so the real question is, as a leader, what can you do to get your team engaged, motivated, and collaborating again?
This situation of heightened uncertainty and change has worn on for so long that people are now depleted and spent. Additionally, in an effort to stay connected and overcome isolation, we’re overusing virtual meeting platforms, and now we are experiencing the fatigue and burnout that comes from that. I have one simple tool that really helps teams get out of meeting overwhelm (and a bonus strategy)!
The trick to getting out of meeting overwhelm is to only call a meeting for one of four reasons: to decide, to move, to ideate, or to debate. I share some examples of how I have used this strategy with my team to get more time back and get more work done, while also creating clarity during meetings that leads to engagement, motivation, and innovation. As a bonus strategy, I also reveal the 10-minute strategy that helps people get rid of the mental residue of moving from one meeting to the next, and engage better.
