“The M.E.E.T. model helps individuals and organizations create a ‘respect-filled’ workplace.” -- Ken Blanchard
M.E.E.T.: Breaking New Ground demonstrates how to use the M.E.E.T. model as a practical tool for managing diversity dynamics while emphasizing inclusion and respect. The four-step model (Make time to discuss; Explore differences; Encourage respect; Take personal responsibility) is based on real experiences involving conﬂict resolution, difficult conversations, stress communications and diversity dynamics. It can be useful in addressing unconscious bias, stereotyping, bullying and other unhelpful responses that create toxic environments and undermine productivity. M.E.E.T. assists, employees at all levels in learning how to recognize, respond to and resolve situations arising from individual and cultural differences in a manner that promotes respectful outcomes, cooperation and teamwork.
This program deals with the “respect and inclusion” component of diversity – from the employee’s perspective. M.E.E.T.: Breaking New Ground will provide your employees with the tools they need to understand and manage their behavior as it relates to others in the workplace.
Using highly relevant and realistic video scenarios involving common situations, such as inappropriate expressions and jokes, unconscious biases and gossip, the scenarios demonstrate techniques for handling stressful communication involving sensitive issues in a way that maximize respect for differences while reaching agreement on what is needed to resolve the conflict or difficulty. The emphasis is placed upon creating the “common ground” needed for “common-sense” agreements which support working relationships and organizational effectiveness.
