Thoughts on the Meee Programme
Sid and Joss are a breath of fresh air. Their energy and enthusiasm is infectious!
They worked collaboratively with us in a short space of time to create an engaging and inspiring session for our leadership conference which we entitled ‘Inspiring Value’.
They combined their vast experience of creating effective employee engagement with the Meee Programme to deliver a session that challenged and inspired our leaders. Their approach enabled the leaders to reflect on what’s important to them and then gave them some great tips (hacks) to implement to help them to continue to inspire their teams and get the best value out of each of them.
Thank you Sid and Joss, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace Report 2017, only 15% of employees worldwide are actively engaged at work - and in Western Europe, it is only 10%. This indicates that a large proportion of employees either lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in company goals or outcomes, or they are unhappy and unproductive at work, and liable to spread negativity to coworkers. Not only does this represent a stunning waste of human potential but it also means that work, for too many people, is nothing more than a necessary chore.
Any organisations greatest asset is its people. Their health, happiness and performance are central to your continued business success, but also a sustainable and growth-focused business. Happy and engaged staff realise a 41% reduction in absenteeism, 59% less staff turnover and show 21% greater profitability. Source: Forbes
In today’s fast-paced and uncertain world, leaders and employees play a crucial role in creating a positive work environment that allows everyone to be at their best each and every day, with the agility, resilience and teamwork to successfully face whatever the world throws at them. But where do you start?
Sometimes, all we need is a shift in our thinking. A gentle nudge to recalibrate our thoughts so we can see a different perspective and access a different outcome or opportunity. We imagine change to be an endless uphill battle, but sometimes it can happen in a minute.
And, at times we have far more questions than answers:
- How can I use my natural strengths and values to be a better leader and employee?
- How can I use my team’s strengths and values to maximise our performance?
- What does ‘effective employee engagement’ look like?
- How can I develop my own leadership toolkit?
- How can I manage my emotions and those of my staff more positively?
- How do I become more resilient in my personal and professional life?
At Meee we’ve created individual and group mentoring sessions, talks and workshops to help provide answers to these questions by exploring a range of topics, such as the link between personal and organisational values, the value of playing to our strengths, how to boost performance by accelerating personal and professional development, and identifying new leadership habits that will encourage innovation, diversity, wellbeing, effectiveness and productivity.
All our sessions are highly engaging and fully interactive, with a lot of our thinking being based our best-selling book ‘Meee in a Minute - 60 ways to improve your life in 60 minutes’. By making this session experiential, all attendees will feel more motivated to make some positive personal changes, which will have a big impact on their teams and your business.
The assessment, measurement and impact of what we do is central to what we deliver. Typically we will look at:
Input - Organisational and personal mission, vision, values, key performance indicators (KPI’s), plus any other relevant research.
Activities - Conduct a ‘state of the nation’ questionnaire with pilot workshops to assess leadership and employee capability and capacities.
Outputs - Evaluation of questionnaires, workshops and quantitative/qualitative data. Feedback measures number of attendees, engagement and enjoyment factors.
Outcomes - The capabilities, strengths, assets, knowledge people gain as a result of the intervention. Feedback measures whether the target group has changed their skills and behaviour, these measures will be co-constructed before any activities begins so the organisation achieves the desired outcomes.
Impact - An assessment of what impact these interventions are having, have had on the business and our recommendations for the future. What long-term change users experience beyond the lifetime of the intervention.
