Just take a moment to pause.
To shut up.
And make sure you are creating the time and space to listen.
To listen to your colleagues.
One of the most important things you can do for your business at the moment, is to make sure you listen to the voice of your colleagues.
As you start to plan your strategy days, leadership meetings, forums & summits, many of which will take place in a virtual world this year, don’t just fill the space with strategic points you need to cascade, but hold the space for voices to flourish.
Ensure you create time for rich conversation in these virtual environments, and most importantly make sure you create space in the agenda to listen. Really listen.
So, how do you begin to listen to 100’s of voices in a virtual space? At egi:live we have created a process called Excellerate which is designed to facilitate multiple meaningful conversations whether they be face to face or virtually.
We create psychological safe spaces, these are spaces where people feel comfortable to share, question and develop ideas that can transform your business. We ensure that every person has an opportunity to contribute and even the quietest voices are heard.
This can be hard to do in the real world, but is even harder to do in a digital space, but through experienced design and expert facilitation we can create that space in online virtual meetings.
So we design agendas that will help surface the strengths of your business and through conversation involve your people, so they are an active player in the strategic narrative rather than just a servant of it. Truly engaging your people in the process.
When you are planning your next meeting, be bold; cut out the content, make time for the conversations that matter and then simply shut up and listen. You will be amazed and inspired with what you get to hear.
