Dealing with team members who derail meetings

Fri, Nov 15, 2013|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on Dealing with team members who derail meetings

From Roger Schwarz: What does your team do when someone takes a meeting off-track? If your team is like most, the leader says something like, “Lee, that’s not what we’re talking about now” or “Let’s get back on track” or the team simply ignores Lee’s comment and tries to bring the conversation back to the original topic.

But if your team responds in any of these ways, Lee may continue to press his off-track point, the meeting may drag on with members getting more frustrated with Lee, and the team won’t accomplish its meeting goals. Or Lee may stop participating for the rest of the meeting and the team, without realizing it, loses Lee’s critical input and support for implementing a team decision. · Go to Dealing with team members who derail meetings →

From Jeffrey Cufaude: Effective facilitation is not just concerned with the immediate task. Its definition of success also includes helping a group or team learn together so they might be more productive in the future. Similarly, when coaching an individual employee, a facilitative leader focuses not only on dealing with the employee’s immediate need, but also with laying a foundation for future strong performance. · Go to Build capacity to accomplish more →
