Structure each meeting similarly so team members know what to expect and feel comfortable participating. A typical meeting sequence is:
-review the agenda,
-set time limits for discussion,
-assign roles for the meeting,
-define the goal of this meeting,
-define procedures for decision-making and information sharing,
-proceed through agenda items,
-summarize this meeting,
-define future actions,
-set next meeting date,
-close with one member sharing a short feel-good story or all participating in a "one-word-go-around."
