Comparison: Traditional vs. Flipped Learning
Comparison:Traditional vs. Flipped Meetings
Thoughts on Flipped Meetings
▪ Traditional meetings are structured to minimize disagreement and
debate with the presenter doing most of the talking. But real progress
can only be made if you structure meetings in a way that brings up
points of disagreement as early in the meeting as possible—minimizing
time to disagreement and maximizing time available for the collective
to come to consensus. And that’s the promise of the flipped meeting.
▪ Expecting decisions to be made during the meeting—and dedicating the
meeting time to discussion rather than presentation—encourages all
attendees to stay engaged, adopt positions, make informed decisions,
and keep projects moving.
▪ Generate the best ideas to solve problems and create new strategies.
▪ Build capacity for leadership at all levels throughout the organization.
▪ Promote sharing of ideas and resources.
▪ Delegate with trust and confidence.
▪ Increase morale.
▪ Create a shared vision for the organization.
▪ Foster collaboration and shared ownership of decisions and tasks.
▪ Encourage investment in the success of the organization.
▪ Maximize efficiency and time management.
