sweet, sweet silence…

Your next meeting should be silent

Here’s how to change the conversation

The Impact of First Speaker Syndrome

→ People respond instead of think.
When someone shares their first thoughts and opinions on a particular idea, we frame what we say next based on a response to what the first person said. We agree or we don’t. We offer a “Yes and…” or a “No, but…”

We need time to think about what we think

What if there was a better way to meet? What if we didn’t talk at all? What if the meeting was actually…silent?
