Are meetings broken in your organization?

 Meetings can be murder -  ineffective,  conflicting, boring, unproductive,  useless time wasters!  Done poorly,  they can suck the life out of  your people and teams.

According to recent studies, this is true in most organizations:

  • In a Harvard Business survey of 182 senior managers from several industries, 71%  said meetings are unproductive and inefficient.
  • According to  Inc. Magazine and Fuze (an online meeting company), executives consider more than 67% of meetings end in failure.
  • A Gallop study determined that 67% of employees are not engaged in their work. 

Ineffective meetings and poor engagement represent a massive cost and  loss of potential for most organizations today.

Broken meetings and conflict

Meetings supply the oxygen that enables your organization to thrive

 Meetings are the place where  voices (ideas, imagination, information, skills and talents) can merge, align and focus to expand  an organization's potential beyond what any one person could do alone.  

Done correctly, meetings supply essential oxygen necessary to survive and thrive in a world of accelerating change and disruption.

Improving how you do meetings will:

  • Increase employee engagement, motivation and morale
  • Expand collaboration, innovation and performance of your teams
  • Increase employee satisfaction  resulting in decreased turnover and attraction of new talent
  • Expand productivity and accelerate achieving your goals
  • Transform your business and build cultural capital
  • Create  high impact, sustainable results

Effective meetings create an environment for the emergence and convergence of great ideas!


Transforming meetings transforms teams

In one  firm studied by Harvard Business, when managers changed their approach to meetings, within a few months:

  • Team collaboration increased 42%
  • Psychological safety increased 32%
  • Team Performance increased 28 %

Effective Meetings

A new learning paradigm...

Leading in a high impact way means immersing oneself in deep learning with a new learning paradigm. This paradigm makes it easy to learn and to stay in the learning process, which continues after the workshop or meeting. Within the new learning paradigm, we focus on conscious learning and conscious leadership which is needed to create the new patterns and abilities we need in this rapidly changing world.

Conscious learning helps us establish new behaviors and actions needed for the future, while unconscious learning reinforces more of the old which may no longer be useful. Meetings are only productive when people are learning, so in this workshop you will learn how you can use this new learning paradigm to support the learning and effectiveness of the people you work with and get the results you are after. In high impact facilitated meetings, participants have the leading role.

Testimonials about this Workshop




Reflecting on my first Genuine Contact course four months later, I can honestly say it's been life changing.

The course helped me name and confirm "truths" about facilitation and leadership that I've been sensing for several years. It has empowered me to bring deeper presence into online meeting spaces in a manner I did not previously realize was possible. My organization had been struggling for years with how to keep the magic of our in-person meetings alive when we are physically apart, and now we have our answer.

Most of all, I appreciate the kindred spirits I've found in the Genuine Contact community. I've never been on a listserv in which every email was so thoughtful, fascinating, and heart warming.

Wesley Hedden, www.sarusprogram.org

The workshop you may find unusual if you have never done any type on online training before.  However, the models and methods used in bringing people together and getting participants to be present were very interesting and engaging.

A big advantage is that you are able to engage and learn with and from participants from all over the globe.  There is no discrimination and the method of learning and engagement actually forces you to expand on the use of your imagination creatively and positively.

The way the program of workshops was put together was very creative and encouraged creativity.

On the whole a very positive creative experience.
