Are your meetings often "taken over" by the loudest voices? Do some individuals tend to interrupt others or monopolize conversations? The "Meeting Timer Talking Stick" will help ensure that one person at a time has the floor and that all voices are heard. The "Talking Stick" has its origins in Native American culture: The Talking Stick was commonly used in council circles to designate who had the right to speak. When matters of great concern came before the council, the leading elder would hold the Talking Stick and begin the discussion. When he finished what he had to say he would hold out the Talking Stick, and whoever wished to speak after him would take it. Try it at your meetings - Introduce the topic of discussion, and then look for a show of hands from people who would like to share their thoughts. Pass the stick to one of the willing participants. If you are working with a large group, you might have people line up when they want to speak. When the person holding the Talking Stick is finished, he or she hands the stick to the next person in line. You might set an additional ground rule such as "If you are ready to pass on the Talking Stick and several hands are raised, hand the stick first to someone who has not yet had an opportunity to speak.” Do you have Pop-Up Meetings?
