The 15-minute meeting at the workplace

The everyday toiling at the workplace always has an interesting event in it — the meeting. It can be made interesting in the following ways —
- Keep an ice-breaker: The early morning meet might be a boring one because people have just entered the office. The ice-breaker can be a joke or even a heartwarming greeting (Well, the second one would be more appropriate).
- A good news a day keeps the moodiness (in the meeting) away: It can be as simple as “The company has bought a new coffeemaker” or as subjective as “The app launch has been proven successful”. The coffee and the success, both would be helpful for your hardworking employees.
- Allow everyone to speak in the meeting: If it is a meeting with only 10–15 employees or a meeting with 20–25 employees, everyone (who wishes to) should be given an opportunity to speak.
- Make the ideas ‘feel’ welcome: Not every idea would be the bestselling, but they might not be worthless either. Make sure someone notes down the ideas and tries working on them.
- Show and tell: This probably feels like something a teacher would tell a student. But, it comes in handy everywhere, even in the office. Learning styles differ with people. Not everyone can be the “I am an avid reader” of the office, some can be “Hey I know the meaning behind this meme”.
These are some simple tips, and we know that you might already be following that. But, probably refresh your ideas.
