|Dear Meeting Guru,
I'm wondering if you know of any great, really
fun videos to show at a large department meeting? We recently showed
a video called "Fish" that was EXCELLENT it talked
about how to make the work place fun. Everyone loved it do
you know of any other really great videos about having fun, motivating
Oak Brook, IL
I have two recommendations for you. The first film
is entitled "The Guest". It's similar to "Fish" in that
it's humorous and addresses the issue of customer service. The message behind
the film is treat your customers just as you would treat a guest in your home
and you'll have exceptional customer service. The film's focus is customer service
but, like "Fish", it's appropriate for a wide variety of audiences.
The second film is "Meetings, Bloody Meetings".
This is an older film which features John Cleese, the British comedian. You
can imagine how funny it is! Basically it's a spoof on the modern-day business
meeting and pokes fun at the common meeting blunders we've all made. However,
it does teach some valuable lessons about effective meeting practices.
hope these recommendations help you bring some fun and entertainment to your
next department meeting. Your meeting participants must be thankful you're trying
to make your meetings educational and
interesting. As the wise philosopher Confucius once said, "If you do it
right, then those close to you will be happy and those who are far away will
come to you." In other words, if you continue to include fun and educational
activities, everyone will want to come to your meetings! Who knows you
might even become your organization's Meeting Guru.
may good meeting karma always be with you.
