Why, What, How?
Meetings are the engine-room for working together. But often meetings are broken. Decisions are fudged, information is lost, and team members build walls. Meetings are the daily obligation that we love to hate.
So how can we do better?
We need to make great decisions, share the most important information, and build bridges with our colleagues and clients.
Collaboration software comes in many forms: messaging (Slack, Teams); whiteboards (Miro); project management (Asana, Notion); note-taking (Otter, Fathom, etc). Most of this gadgetry and software treats people like cogs in a machine: recording information, allocating tasks, alerting problems.
Whispers engages with colleagues and clients as humans. It highlights hopes, anxieties, and communication patterns.
Usually what’s most important isn’t being smart as individuals, it’s being intelligent about how we work together.
We’ve built Whispers on cutting-edge research from social psychology, management science, and meetings facilitation. If you were making an app based on research that 40% of team performance depends on collaboration, that app would be Whispers.
Whispers brings you the world’s best wisdom on managing difficult situations, right there in your meeting.
And if anything doesn’t work for you, give instant feedback: we’ll improve it for next time.
Human collaboration deserves better.
We’re building Whispers because we’ve seen and felt the pain.
Bad meetings are a tragedy.
Let’s leverage the best of science and art to make meetings brilliant.
