Facilitating High Stakes Meetings

Recent Studies Show:

  • Up to half of all corporate meetings are considered a waste of time

  • 91% of people acknowledge that they daydreamed during meetings

  • 73% did other work in meetings

  • 28% of meetings include the wrong people or include folks who just should not be there

  • Over half of executive off-sites are considered unproductive

All of this shifts the focus away from the real issues you need solved.

Are you tired of rambling meetings that don’t meet the objective or finish the agenda? Are you struggling to reach consensus with diverse or disparate stakeholders on complex issues?  Are hidden agendas derailing alignment? Do meetings feel more like updates than real collaboration and problem solving? Do people agree and do something different outside the room?

Research shows that middle managers spend about 35% of their time in meetings, and in upper management, it is often a whopping 50%. What’s worse is that up to 50% of meetings are considered a waste of time.

Effectively planned and orchestrated high stakes meetings ensure that intended outcomes are achieved for good, regardless of how complex the issues are or how divergent the stakeholders. We have facilitated thousands of meetings globally at every level, from executive retreats and business planning, to helping teams find their groove. Whether it’s aligning around a future state or customer experience, building a strategy, brainstorming new products, conference planning and facilitation or project management, LeaderShift meetings are designed and facilitated to get results.

We create alignment so you can achieve your
objectives through more effective meetings.

Leadership is the Day to Day
Communication about the Real Issues.
