Effective Strategies to Get People to Pay Attention During Your MSP Business Meetings
Your MSP business is going to require continuous transitions, as technology is always in flux, and many factors like competition will change future procedures. Here’s a problem, though: meetings are boring, no matter how integral they are. People have personal lives, and their minds are apt to space out; that’s just how it is. How do you overcome this? Well, not by ignoring the problem, that’s for sure. You can’t force people to pay attention, but you can make it difficult for them not to. Here are some ways to do that:
Your MSP business likely understands the basic laws of physics: every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Many relationships of this physical nature define electronic functionality of computational equipment. Similarly, in terms of “metaphysical” or “human” energy, you’ll find that you have some control here. If you bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to a meeting, that will be translated to people you’re interacting with. You want real energy that’s positive, and properly-placed enthusiasm. Synthetic enthusiasm will also have an energy impact, but of a negative variety. Nobody likes “kitschy” or “fake” personality.
The Value of Humor
Laughter is the best medicine, and it’s a great way to get your employees to tune in. When you’re cracking jokes, those in the meeting will naturally want to pay attention so they don’t miss something funny. Humor can be risky, though, as it is always on the edge of offense. So be careful, here. There’s a balance.
Simplicity and Relevant Involvement
Don’t have those in a meeting that have no reason to be there, and don’t make meetings overly complex. Even the most enthusiastic, humorous meeting will lose people if you try to cover too much. Line out objectives and stick to them.
Hitting All the Right Marks
Your MSP business must have meetings. Make the most of them. Through enthusiasm, humor, simplicity, and relevant attendees, you’re primed to maximize the impact of meetings.
