We work with teams to help them have more inclusive and productive meetings and build stronger relationships.  We start with meetings, as so much team time is spent in meetings. We begin by introducing team chairing and passing (TCP) and video meeting signals (VMS) alongside eight meeting behaviours we ask the team to adopt and try out for five meetings.    

 
 

Scroll over each video meeting signal to see the meaning
