It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well. This has reminded us to slow down and take time for conversation with each other/to build relationships instead of just “work” all the time People are more ready to engage in the work when we start a session with such an activity that breaks down walls and gives time to process emotions and make connections before digging into the work ahead. I’ve implemented the high lows to start my end of season coaches meeting, and I’ve found it sets the tone for how the meetings go and opens up an authentic dialogue between myself and my coaches. This information is so important, but one that is probably the easiest to neglect due to our crazy schedules. We need to make a concerted effort to make this work a priority and something that we are committed to continue.
