  1. I will apply the closing statement idea in my next huddle, as well as the image cards to engage them from the start. Thanks!

  2. I’ve been using the Engage pic. cards to review vocabulary and certain grammar points with my students. Needless to say, the results have been great since the students have to use the target language creatively, and in different contexts and situations. Thanks again for your wonderful cards.

    1. This is AMAZING! Emeris, I’m actively working on a new book focused on condensing and translating a lot of the information sharing my videos into written form to be accessible to more people. One of the ideas that I had this morning that I connected with the designer over is actually including YouTube comments at the beginning of each chapter. If you are open to it, yours might be one of them 🙂

    2. @Emeris Wolf haha! Love it. Looking forward to continuing the conversation in future comments in future videos.

  3. BTW ‘the unofficial start’ is a brilliant idea, one I’ve been using for months now.

    1. It’s the lowest hanging fruit method to set a great tone for engagement! Glad you are enjoying.

  4. I believe meetings can be engaging, meaningful and powerful to drive change in individuals. Great activities Chad. When you drew the letter in the air, it actually got me thinking…. can something like drawing in the air (maybe items or letters) be turned into some sort of activity or game to make meetings more engaging….. I’ll keep playing around with it and see if something comes up. Or maybe you’ll think of something!….

    Thanks Chad! Have a great week!

  5. I believe the use of changing up my profile picture to one of the connection card images or questions has sparked an interest in others when sharing meeting space.
    I will continue to weave these examples into all virtual interactions because of personal mission to change up the spoon feeding of boring meeting menus – ARGH life is tooooo short!
    PSA – Chad keep the ‘have an awesome day’ it’s a worthy signature🎉

  6. I always enjoy the unofficial start and have used these in some of my presentations and have been a great way to get the meeting started and set the intention of the meeting.

  7. I will be more intentional with the use of closing statements!

  8. I am definitely going to use most of these in my next workshop. Great job so on point.

    1. This is what I LOVE to hear my friend! Did your cards eventually arrive!? 😊

  9. You are just Amazing Chad👌I have recently implemented few of your ideas and got lot of appreciation. A big Thank you! 😊

    1. Thanks a bunch, Chaitrali! Nice to connect with you here. I’ll keep the idea flowing.

  10. I will be watching more of your videos. (My closing sentence). Thank you.

  11. I will certainly use these ideas for conducting our next senior management meeting. I love the idea of keeping the pulse of the participants via a likert scale.

    1. It’s a fantastically easy way to reset attention and bring the group back. I used this method just last night with leaders at the University of Washington in a way to help personalize the learning and discussion that followed. For example, I asked them on a scale of 1 to 10, how tactical/practical (1) or high level/inspirational (10) would you like our conversation to be at. This gently guided us toward the “right” conversation for them at that time. Hope another example is helpful, Taisha. Welcome to the channel!

    1. Sharing this videos with team members as a way of “delegating engagement” is a wonderful strategy in and of itself. “Hey Mark, can you watch this and pick one of this ideas to wrap up our meeting on Monday?” Boom 👍👍

  12. Thanks a lot for these Chad , I watch your videos all the time. Very helpful. Much appreciated
