Whales Aren't Just in the Water. They Should Be in Your Meeting, Too

Don’t worry, no actual whales will be swimming around your conference room! But the WHALE acronym can remind you to stop and listen for your team’s input before sharing your ideas.

Even if you see a clear answer to a problem, wait to share it. Run through WHALE in your head before you blurt out your ideas. Waiting, asking good questions, and listening well can spark new conversations or get quieter employees to share their thoughts.
