An Energizing Way to End Your Staff Meeting

Posted by Kristin Arnold on July 19, 2016

Take a page from the Arkadium team playbook with this “Lil’ Wins” idea to finish off your 15-minute huddle:

Then, at the end of their Monday morning staff meeting, with a two-minute timer counting down the seconds, the 30-person team is eager to share their “Lil’ Wins.”  According to Inc. magazine, “The shouting, cheering and laughing begin. ‘We finished a new game demo!’ ‘My husband and I bought our first house!’ ‘I hosted a Monday meeting!'”

What a cool and energizing way to end your staff meeting!
