Sparkspace founder explains how to conduct effective meetings in Podcast 234

So much time today is spent in front of screens, that sometimes it seems people have lost the ability to communicate.

This week’s guest is Mark Henson, the founder of Sparkspace, an event center in Columbus, Ohio. He is an expert at facilitating meetings by getting people to communicate with each other.

He offers some valuable tips on how to get people talking face to face so they build meaningful relationships while sharing ideas.

He outlines some of the necessary steps to conduct productive meetings, and draw input out of all people rather than allowing a few folks to monopolize the conversations.

Mark also explains why it is effective to conduct important meetings off-site in a neutral environment to help spur creativity and outside-the-box thinking.

He even explains whether businesses are better off hiring a professional facilitator or whether a manager or staff member can be just as effective in leading a conversation

Mark also wrote a book last year titled Ordinary Superpowers: Unleash the Full Potential of Your Most Natural Talents.

He describes what constitutes an ordinary superpower and explains how people can tap into that inner strength to become extraordinarily successful.

Everybody has something for which they are genuinely gifted at doing, he noted. That natural talent is often someone else’s dreaded chore.
