What makes a meeting a mindful meeting?
Let’s face it, many people don’t love going to a lot of meetings, especially if they are poorly executed. You’ve probably had your share of meetings that felt like a total waste of time. A mindful meeting can help solve this issue. A mindful meeting is one that infuses mindfulness practices and emotional intelligence into an effective meeting structure.
The intention of a mindful meeting is to create the conditions that allow for focused attention, thoughtful responses, deeper connection between participants, and to foster emotionally intelligent participation. What makes a meet mindful is mostly in how participants show up and interact with one another. It is important to note that not every meeting needs to be mindful and not every mindful meet needs to follow all of the suggested steps.
