Stir Fry Meetings

Beth Miller |

How much time are you spending in meetings on a weekly basis? Many companies have a “meeting” culture and as a consultant to many small and mid-size companies, I find myself spending  time observing leaders in meetings as part of a development planning process.

So often I observe meeting participants becoming disconnected during the meetings because the content is boring and often predictable. I recommend that you use the “Stir Fry” method to meetings. Stir Fry meetings require an ongoing change of ingredients—agenda items, extreme heat–excitement and passion, and a secret sauce–this is the “why” of a meeting, the goal that brings all the participants together.

So, if you are going to be spending a lot of time in meetings implement the stir fry framework. For some ideas that other CEOs have used, click here to read this article from Fast Company.
