7 Minute Briefings

7 minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.  Their brief duration should also mean that they hold people’s attention, as well as giving managers something to share with their staff. Clearly the briefings will not have all the answers, but it is hoped that they will act as a catalyst to help teams and their managers to reflect on their practice and systems. The expectation is that team leaders will present briefings to their staff, on a regular basis.
