Sometimes it’s what you don’t say . . .

I learned that some organisations encourage silent moments in meetings – simply to allow people to think.

Alexander Kjerulf, founder and chief happiness officer at Woohoo, says:

“The purpose of meetings is not to talk – the purpose of meetings is to arrive at ideas, solutions, plans and decisions … some people can think while they’re talking; most can’t.”

Shhh … I can’t hear what I’m saying.

Love it!
