Today, I had a very good meeting with my team.
Here-below, some tips, I’ve discovered in HBR.
- Don’t dominate. This not only gives others less time to speak up but also conveys that only your ideas are important. Let at least three people speak before you talk again.
- Be positive. Demonstrate that all ideas are valuable by restating important points. Thank people who are usually reticent for their comments.
- Ask directly. To get input from everyone, ask each person for their thoughts. Don’t do it in a confrontational way. Try, “Do you have anything to share?”
