Agile, Fast-Flex Meetings (As-You-Work Workshop)
Teams and organizations wanting rapid team empowerment, culture transformation, and meeting effectiveness. Suitable for on-site, virtual, and hybrid teams.
Fast, Focused, Fun, Forever (in One Week)
Are your company meetings exciting? Astonishingly effective? Do you look forward to participating? Or do you look for excuses?
Priacta specializes in rapid change that transforms teams and lives with the least possible effort. In one week you can move your meetings from boring to brilliant, then watch your organization start to transform itself.
How We Do It
We teach you new, powerful meeting principles, empower team leaders to facilitate in radically new ways, introduce you to new software tools and new ways of engaging, and drill your team in their new methods. We do most of it during your actual meetings, so you change as you do your work.
The entire change takes about a week from start to finish for a single team, with as much coach follow-up as needed over a month to ensure permanent habits. Members of other teams can listen in and begin adopting the changes on their own, with mentoring from your charter team to reinforce and spread their new habits. Or our coaches can step in to transform them as well. You decide.
- Team Leader Discovery and Training
The transformation begins with a Priacta coach interviewing your team lead(s) by phone or webcam. We ask precise questions to assess your team's unique needs. We also assess your team's IT environment to recommend appropriate meeting support tools. Then we train your team leaders in the principles and skills behind agile, agendaless meetings so they are ready to facilitate brilliantly.
- Team Training
Next, your coach meets with the team via private webinar and trains them on the new approach and tools. All questions are answered and new tools set up during that session. The team feels excitement and hope as they grasp the benefits of the new meeting format, and they are anxious to begin.
- First Agile Meeting
Change starts now! The team immediately dives in to hold their first meeting using the new approach. You lead the team while the coach assists you. Your team tackles easy issues first, then jumps in to solve the most difficult problems you now face. As success unfolds, everyone feels exhilarated! The meeting ends on time, and people leave energized to continue working.
- Post-Meeting Mentoring
Right after your first success, you and your coach wrap things up. You are trained and guided through post-meeting steps, and you choose and train the person who will handle that in the future.
- Second Agile Meeting
The next time you meet (one week later in most cases), you repeat your prior successes and take it to the next level. You learn how to follow up effectively, and you solidify your new approach. Once you start down this path, your team will never want to go back!
- A dedicated business analyst/coach.
- A customized agile, agendaless meeting template you can use throughout your organization.
- Coach-led training session with team leader(s).
- Coach mentoring for meeting leader(s) and team(s) in two meetings.
- (Rarely, if needed.) If additional personnel and team issues come to light during this process, you will receive recommendations for optional training services to implement a complete transformation. (Could include 1-1 coaching, training, employee turnaround, leader onboarding, consulting, or interim management services to address personnel issues for a complete transformation. Use us or do it yourself, you decide.)
