TRY THIS: Prepare your team by creating a shared language. This can help the group overcome talking in circles and instead focus on strategy. It can also help them test creative exercises and mesh as a unit. Unity helps your team understand and identify with their mission or goals.
RESEARCH SAYS: Teams with a shared language may have more enjoyable meetings that are full of energy. Team unity will also result in outcomes beyond a focus on tech, products, and features toward creating value for your customers and your company (Perlow & Weeks, 2002).
