Meetings with More Informality

Consider making some meetings more fun and informal for relationship- building purposes. Open the meeting by showing a comic strip on a related topic (Dilbert comics are a fun option), or share a humourous quote or poem. A simple game of “catch around the table” involving a soft, small ball will not only help your group generate more ideas, but will also emphasize the importance of engaging in active participation during a discussion. Begin by throwing the ball to one employee who shares their thoughts/inputs and then passes the ball to someone else. This game is particularly effective with brainstorming and encourages everyone to take part.
