Small Talks

Small Talks

Small talks are short chats that put your team on course.

They can seem so unnecessary, but are empowering and momentum sustaining if done correctly.

  • A morning encouragement and direction.
  • A 2 minute afternoon meeting that directs a manager on how to navigate a problem.
  • A brisk walk to the coffee shop down the hall while clarifying a proposal with your co-founder.
  • A early morning kiss on the cheek, look into your loved one’s eyes and giving them a pep talk for the day.
  • This is what we’re going to do and this is how we’ll execute it—direction meeting.

Small talks don’t take a lot of effort, but they take forethought and intentionality. If done consistently and thoughtfully, they can transform the morale and momentum of your company.
