Nobody goes into meetings thinking...
Let's make some bad decisions today!
Collaboration is a must to move any enterprise forward. Decisions on how & what to do are largely made in meetings. Whether deciding on innovation or the stability of continuity, the input of everyone is essential.
- Acquiescence is a silent or passive assent or submission.
- Agreement is an understanding between entities to follow a specific course of conduct.
Silence from the team is acquiescence. This leads to the friction, confusion & underperformance of dysfunctional organizations.
Agreement is achieved after healthy debate and is the sign that everyone matters.
When leaders pump fear out of the environment it can unleash the collective intelligence of the team.
When everyone matters, speaking up is commonplace. When everyone matters, questions provide clarity. When everyone matters, opportunities are created for what matters to everyone on the team.
Decide to speak up. Decide to help everyone matter!
