"Happy Meetings - How to introduce a happy meeting culture in your organisation?"
At the closure event of the International Week of Happiness at Work, on Friday September 27th, participants can choose to attend 2 workshops out of a selection of 6.
This Dutch speaking workshop on ‘happy meetings’ will be led by Tryangle, an organisation that supports organisations with a wide offer of trainings and consulting on corporate wellbeing and happiness at work.
In this workshop, Tryangle will present easy to use tools and loads of tips to transform your meetings. The result? More efficient, shorter meetings and happy colleagues. You will be receiving practical examples and tools to take back to and apply in your own working environment.
3 tips for happier meetings
“Meetings are always boring and predictable!”, “Meetings are necessary, but no one actually likes them.” These are just a few quotes about corporate meetings that may sound slightly familiar. We’re not only going to contradict these notions, we’re going to show you just how meetings can be useful, efficient and fun at the same time. You can discover more tips in our workshop, but here are already 3 tips to get you started:
“Naked? I’m sorry, that’s just not going to work!” Just kidding, you will definitely be able to keep your clothes on, we’re just inviting you to leave your laptop on your desk when you attend a meeting. This way, you won’t be tempted to quickly send out an email (and another, and another,..), now you can simply focus fully on the topic at hand. Extra bonus: By not multitasking, you won’t get tired so quickly and meetings will take less time.
You can leave your hat on
“Stripping? Ok, that really is one step too far!” Hmm… no need to actually strip. But have you already heard about the 6 hats meeting technique? You don’t always have to do your meetings in the exact same way. There are plenty of modern and active ways to handle meetings and that allow you to switch things up.
A happy ending !
Just imagine leaving the meeting with a big smile: you have fresh ideas and renewed energy to go about your day and get tasks done. You know exactly what is expected of you and you have had an impact on how you are going to achieve your goals. Your motivation and engagement are skyrocketing and your happiness at work has just received a big boost!
In the interactive workshop, Tryangle will explore these tips and many more, so you can implement them in your own team and organisation. Based on a number of practical examples, we’ll be offering you a matrix tool to take meetings to the next level for a more efficient result.
