Ways to overcome

  • Model healthy engagement yourself.
  • Clearly communicate when an invitation is optional, and if some employees aren’t included, make it clear that you appreciate their advice
  • Make sure you’re not using meeting attendance as a proxy for commitment, whether consciously or subconsciously.
  • Encourage people to block off deep focus time, do so yourself — and make it public.
