Daniel Stillman on how leaders leading change need to intentionally design their meetings and conversations.
Inefficient meetings cost us tons of money. How can we redesign our meetings and conversations to make them better?
In this episode we’re speaking with Daniel Stillman, designer, facilitation expert, and author of the book “Good Talk”. Daniel talks with us about the need to intentionally design our meetings and conversations. We spend a lot of time talking with each other. Studies have shown that the average worker spends 5 hr/week in meetings while managers spend between 12-14 hours in meetings/week. It’s estimated that these inefficient meetings result in a productivity loss as high as $37B. Conversations may seem like mushy, fluid things but conversations do have a structure. Daniel shares with us his thoughts on the ConversationOS (operating system) and how leadership is the art of designing the conditions for a transformative conversation.
