Who is your audience:
-A group of your ideal clients
-The non-profit board where you volunteer
If you’re a business owner, the answer is all of the above. At some point, these groups are your audience. You will meet with them to discuss an idea, a project, or an outcome. Spotting their human wiring could make a real difference in you being a meeting master.
The Meeting Leader’s Role
Your role as a leader is to communicate effectively and shape each meeting so that your audience connects with your content. What most leaders do, however, is hold meetings that do nothing to address the various ways that people learn or process information.
Far too often, meeting leaders make it all about themselves, when it’s really about your participants. As a meeting leader, your job is to keep your audience engaged regardless of how interesting your content may or may not be.
Understand Human Wiring
Did you know that your audience members are hardwired to specific kinds of learning methodologies? If you asked your audience the best way that they learn, many of them wouldn’t have a clue.
As a leader, when you discover how your audience learns, you can deliver meetings, no matter how large or small, that are effective and inspire others into action.
For example, if your team is made up of people who are hardwired to learn by trial and error, and you are giving a lot of information and talking non-stop, the training will fall flat. Your role as a leader is to shape each meeting so that your audience connects with your content. In this case, the leader should prepare for an interactive meeting where the audience can actively participate and provide their input.
Becoming a meeting master starts with understanding your human wiring and that of others. Human wiring is at the heart of all communication.
I invite you to participate in our workshop Wired to Win 101: How Are You Hardwired? held at the Business Innovation Lab in Livonia, Michigan on Saturday, June 15, 2019.
In this workshop, you will:
-Maximize your unique mix of human wiring.
