Forget Ground Rules. Here's a Better Way to Start Your Meeting
How well you start a meeting, how you set expectations and create an environment of psychological safety, is a key determinant of meeting success. Brainstorming ground rules, while well intentioned, rarely changes meeting behaviors. Here's a better way.

Pat's works are available wherever books are sold, including on Google Play: http://goo.gl/B7uWM3 . Worldbuilders can be found at http://www.worldbuilders.org . The first two books in the Kingkiller Chronicle are a first-person account of the life of Kvothe, a notorious magician, an accomplished thief, a masterful musician, and an infamous assassin. He has made himself a legend - but the creator of a legend can also become its victim. "It is a rare and great pleasure to come on somebody writing the way (Patrick Rothfuss does)." - U. K. LeGuin Legendary fantasy writer Patrick Rothfuss disappeared from public view some time ago. There is an innkeeper in a small town in the remote province of Wisconsin who looks vaguely like him if the light is dim enough and you've had enough drinks. You can find more Patrick Rothfuss paraphernalia at his sites: http://www.patrickrothfuss.com . As a note to fans, this video contains spoilers and plot discussions for the Name of the Wind, Wise Man's Fear, and the Adventures of Princess and Mr. Whiffle.

What About Personality Conflicts?
There can be personality conflicts on teams and at the meetings. Some meetings are like a verbal fist-fight – someone leads with a sarcastic statement, someone responds with an innuendo. Even though people selected the same industry, interviewed to work in the same organization, personalities might still clash. Hopefully you have a ground rule that you can refer to that will stall or permanently stop the disrespectful speech. If not, it’s time to establish one. When a sarcastic statement is voiced, ask for specifics, or ask them what they mean by their comments. A useful method to manage personality conflicts is to split the meeting participants into two or three sub-groups and put them on separate teams. You may be able to create some friendly competition that will produce positive results and soften the personality clash. Also, taking a break or two can help diffuse the tension. If it continues to fester, you can simply stop the meeting and ask the group or team for suggestions. Get it out in the open and discuss it rationally. It is clear that these two people find it challenging to work together. As a group, brainstorm twenty or thirty ideas that could be considered that could help make meetings more constructive than destructive. When it comes to personality conflicts at work…we need to find a way to make it work. Sometimes people are scrapping with each other to get appreciation or at least get some attention. Sometimes it is their personality or sometimes it is their sense of humor. No matter what it is…it is destructive…to the team and to morale. Have the courage to address the issue and move your meetings forward.

Susan Cain: "Quiet" | Talks at Google
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Taking the reader on a journey from Dale Carnegie's birthplace to Harvard Business School, from a Tony Robbins seminar to an evangelical megachurch, Susan Cain charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She talks to Asian-American students who feel alienated from the brash, backslapping atmosphere of American schools. She questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked. And she draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts. Perhaps most inspiring, she introduces us to successful introverts--from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Finally, she offers invaluable advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child to when it makes sense to be a "pretend extrovert." This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.

How to Brainstorm
Listen to the full episode: http://LamboGoal.com/22 Join the Community: http://seanwes.com/community People often say there’s no such thing as a bad idea in a brainstorming session, but come on—is that really true? Well sure, some ideas truly are bad, but that doesn’t mean they should be discouraged in the context of a brainstorm. An objectively bad idea may provide the perfect contrast and fertile ground for a great idea to grow. This episode actually turned into a kind of brainstorm in and of itself. We talk about some practical tips for coming up with ideas, using a whiteboard, Matt's reverse funnel of specificity, why location matters, the purpose of bad ideas, and why to come into a brainstorming session with a goal. http://seanwes.com http://seanwes.com/podcast http://twitter.com/seanwes http://facebook.com/seanwes http://instagram.com/seanwes

Robert Sutton | Talks at Google
If you are a boss who wants to do great work, what can you do about it? Good Boss, Bad Boss is devoted to answering that question. Stanford Professor Robert Sutton weaves together the best psychological and management research with compelling stories and cases to reveal the mindset and moves of the best (and worst) bosses. This book was inspired by the deluge of emails, research, phone calls, and conversations that Dr. Sutton experienced after publishing his blockbuster bestseller "The No Asshole Rule." He realized that most of these stories and studies swirled around a central figure in every workplace: THE BOSS. Sutton discovered that most bosses -- and their followers -- wanted a lot more than just a jerk-free workplace. They aspired to become (or work for) an all-around great boss, with the skill and grit to inspire great work, commitment, and dignity among their charges.

How to define organizational values
How to Establish Personal and Organizational Values. When personal and organizational values are aligned and shared by key stakeholders great things can happen. In my last video and article (http://www.optimusperformance.ca/are-happy-and-engaged-employees-more-productive-2/) I spoke about two business leaders who claimed their company success was in great part due to their well communicated corporate values. Creating corporate values is a pretty straightforward affair. You of course need to afford the time it takes to do it. And this is where many businesses fail, as a high percentage of business owners and leaders are too busy dealing with the day-to-day business matters. Once you understand the benefits and the importance of defining your corporate values will set aside the time it takes to get it done. Just last week I facilitated a values definition meeting for customer service department. Within two hours they had shared their key personal values and agreed on their five top departmental values. The next step for them will be to define what each of those values means so they can be lived by the team members. Here are the steps to go through to set the values for your organization. It is imperative to have a skilled facilitator run these sessions. I good facilitator will set ground rules to make sure that the participants stay on track and come to a consensus. Here is the process I use: Personal Values The first step is to meet with your team and brainstorm the personal values of each team member. I like to start with a long list of personal values and have each person classify the values by order of importance using high, medium or low importance. From this list. I then have them rate the high importance, values on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most important. Then I asked them to choose their top five most important values from the weighted list. I then have each person share their top five values and write them on a flip-chart. We then can see what the most common shared values are. Next I ask each person to choose one of the values and write down why that value is important to them. I have each person then share what they wrote and asked for comments from the others. This helps each person understand how each one thinks and helps build mutual understanding and communication. Organizational Values. I follow the same process for setting the organizational or departmental values as I did with the personal values. The differences I start with a list of values that are different than the personal values. If you do not start with a list of values, you can always have the group brainstorm a list and then go from there. Having a prepared list facilitates the process and saves time. Once we have listed the most important organizational or departmental values on the flip chart, it's often easy to see the shared most important values. Often, there may be three or four that stand out and then you have five or six that may need prioritizing. I would suggest having between four and six key values and not more. One way to prioritize the list of remaining values is to have the group go through the same exercise of waiting each value as before. This usually narrows down the list to two or three top values. Values Definition. Once the top organizational department values are determined ask each person to write down a description of each value. I ask the question, what would other people see happening if everyone in your organization or department was putting into practice these values? Depending on the size of the group. You can then have people pair up and take one value and summarize the definition of the value based on hearing what others had to say about that value. Or you could assign one person per value to take what each person wrote and summarize this in a statement. They would do this is an assignment and report back at the next meeting. Strategic Vision. Defining organizational and departmental values that are linked to personal values is a key step in creating a strategic vision and plan. It's a great way to engage people and rally them behind a purpose and mission. It is also a key element in building an autonomous team that practices continuous improvement.

Explicit Instruction: Opportunities To Respond: Partner Responses
This video is about Opportunities To Respond In this edition of Ten Minute Clinic we will take a closer look at an Explicit Instruction lesson delivery technique, opportunities to respond. We will specifically look at partner responses. Partner responses is an important lesson delivery technique that will help you reach your instructional goals of helping students to become increasingly respectful, responsible, resourceful, and highly engaged in instructional activities. Partner responses can be especially helpful in the area of student engagement. There are four lesson delivery techniques that can take your lesson to the next level. The four techniques are: 1. Opportunities To Respond 2. Monitor Student Progress 3. Feedback 4. Pace Opportunities To Respond, also know as OTR, consists of Speaking, Writing, and Signaling. We will be delving into Speaking in this Ten Minute Clinic by looking closely at Partner responses, which falls into the Speaking category. Partner response occurs when ALL students have an opportunity to share answers with a partner. Partner response should be used when answers vary and the wording is longer. The teacher can support effective use of partner response by strategically assigning partners, paying close attention to proper positioning of partners, and providing students with partner communication techniques. There are four highly successful Partner Response strategies: 1. Think-Pair-Share 2. Think and Write-Pair and Write-Share 3. The PAUSE Procedure 4. Study-Tell-Help-Check Think-Pair-Share is when the teacher asks the class a question and gives them time to think. The students then pair up and share their ideas about the question. The teacher then calls on some of the students to share their thoughts with the class. This powerful partner response strategy was created by Frank Lyman in 1981 and has withstood the test of time. Think and Write-Pair and Write-Share is when the teacher adds a WRITE step to Think-Pair-Share. This step is a sort of brainstorming. Students write down their ideas before pairing up. This is a great way to mix up Think-Pair-Share as well as a great way to hold students accountable as it is easier to monitor a “write” step as opposed to a “think”. The PAUSE Procedure is useful during a longer lecture. During a lecture, the teacher pauses after 12-18 minutes to give the students 3-4 minutes to process the information. During this pause, the students can do a number of things. Some suggested uses of this time are to conduct summarizing, answering, predicting, and sharing activities. Study-Tell-Help-Check is when the teacher gives the students 2 minutes to study. Then one student tells the partner all that they can remember. The partner then helps the student by reminding them of any missing information. The partners then use all available resources to check their accuracy. This potent strategy is huge for helping students feel more accountable for their learning. Check out my blog at heathmharmon.com. Find me on twitter @Heath_M_Harmon Check out my videos on Youtube.

THERE’S NO REAL DOWNSIDE TO MEDIATION WITH MINIMAL RISK, AND THE UPSIDE OF COURSE, IS ACCEPTABLE SETTLEMENT. 1. Mediation is voluntary - anyone can opt out at any time for any reason, or for no reason at all. It is non-binding: you don’t form agreements unless you want to (and you can always fall back on litigation or arbitration). 2. Mediation preserves relationships and avoids bad publicity. Discussions can be as free as the parties would like them to be - no content can be used as evidence at a later stage. Unlike arbitration, the disputants control the outcome – not a third party. 3. A Mediator is a catalyst for a collaborative approach to brainstorm and ultimately generate creative solutions. What is revealed and ‘put on the table’ by the parties is like the visible caps of an iceberg. It is the underlying interests ‘below the waterline’ - to be explored and discovered as common ground, shared interests, and ‘trade-ables’. 4. The Mediator receives information privately where concerns, weaknesses, strengths, and underlying interests are disclosed. These confidentialities are not available to the other side but do provide the Mediator with a big picture overview. Fresh eyes identify commonalities, the endgame being to activate thinking and creativity, leaving no value on the table. 5. The cost is minimal and the disputants will have structured a bespoke solution. Mediators are objective professionals - not only independent and neutral but perceived to be neutral. They facilitate face to face caucusing: private sessions where each party can discuss their issues in confidence. The effectiveness of Mediation depends on frankness: the needs, fears, underlying interests, reservations, bottom lines and options of each party must become known to the Mediator. 6. Nothing gets ‘heard’ by the other party without explicit permission: each party can ‘lay everything on the table’ freely and openly discuss necessities, negotiables, restrictions, or desirables. The Mediator accesses the ‘agenda’ of both sides from an impartial standpoint, reframing matters within the big picture with the needs and interests of both parties in mind. 7. The Mediator will propose “what ifs” to reality test assumptions; delving into issues to find ways of bringing the parties together. Settlement is usually the culmination of several small trades and concessions all wrapped up in a final agreement. So you have a conflict crisis. 8. When is the right time to call in a Mediator? As soon as possible after negotiations fail. Mediation rather than legal action should be the next step - the quickest and less costly choice. The minute the first shot is fired you’ve entered the ‘Zone of Escalation’ where the conflict takes on a life of its own and intensifies escalates the original dispute, becoming more difficult to control or budget for. Conflict that is complicated by multiple issues triggers further wastes of time, distraction, and expenditure. 9. Mediation is increasingly being done online through sophisticated and secure video conferencing resources. Getting all parties, possibly their attorneys, and a Mediator together in one place at the same time is challenging and potentially expensive. It is being referred to as the “convening penalty”. Online Mediation functions in much the same way as ‘live’ Mediation, except that the parties can be scattered across the globe. There is synchronous online Mediation where all parties are present simultaneously. There is also asynchronous online Mediation - where participants can clock in at times that work for them. It can, and usually is, a combination of the two, together with other communications that suit the situation, like email or the telephone. This provides the disputants with a host of options to make the experience as efficient and cost-effective as possible. The Mediator should be highly trained with a good grounding in dispute settlement, conflict theory and conflict management - with plenty ‘street-smarts’. With years of experience in business, and subsequent training, Mervyn Malamed has just that. Together with his post-grad Dispute Settlement studies from Stellenbosch University, South Africa, he is an accredited CEDR Mediator (Center for Effective Dispute Resolution, London), qualified to conduct psychometric testing of conflict behaviour, a certified trainer of several top conflict management training courses, and has also created his own comprehensive training course.
