Goal

This tool is a tremendously helpful way to get people thinking about and helping each other with an outward mindset. Use it either as a regular way to keep your team working with an outward mindset and/or as a tool to turn your team outward when they are getting inward.

You can also use this tool individually with other people you affect who are not on your team.

A key difference between this tool and others such as Meet to Learn is the effort by the person utilizing Meet to Give to identify what they think are the other person’s objectives, and to then offer to give very specific help.

    Instructions

    List the names of three people (perhaps in this room) whose work is affected by your work. You can also use this sequence with groups of people (instead of individuals).


    1. Their objectives. For each person (or group), write down what you think are their key workplace objectives.

    2. Ways you make things difficult. For each person (or group), write down ways you have gotten in their way or created difficulty for them—any ways you have made it harder (or failed to make it easier) for them to achieve their objectives, as well as any mistakes or misunderstandings you need to take responsibility for.

    3. Changes you can make. For each person (or group), write down one to three things you could do that would be helpful to them (e.g., things you could do more of, less of, or differently; information or resources you could utilize or share differently; new actions you could take; support youcould give, etc.).

    4. Meet and offer. Meet with the people (or group) you have identified and share your answers to items 1–3 above. Get their feedback and agree on a way forward/action plan.
