Do you find it difficult to get everyone together and present in order to be productive at a team meeting or even for a morning huddle? Most team members are physically there but not truly present. To help become more present – try this exercise to create purposeful pause time:
Provide a blank piece of paper and a pen to each of the team members. Ask a question like this in nature; If we could design an ideal day, what would it look like?
Allow the team members to write for 3-4 minutes.
Allow the team to keep their work without sharing.
Create space and time for the team to come together fully engaged and focused on the needs of the practice.
Exercise # 49: Write for 3-4 minutes before starting a team meeting.
