Management Team (MT) meetings are restricted by default. Even the minutes afterward are for a limited group of people. But what if you open up the MT meetings by adding one extra seat at the table. For employees who are interested, for the ones who have great ideas, or the ambitious ones. But mainly for open up as the Management Team to the department/company.
What steps to take for the practice
Keep one seat free in the MT meeting
Decide if you want the new participant to only join and listen, or also can add subjects to the agenda
Announce it to the rest of the employees. Don't forget to mention why you are doing this and how it works.
In my experience, it helps to keep promoting the open seat. Repeat that for a certain amount of times.
A Management Team with a gesture for you to join their meeting. That gives employees a feeling of trust and appreciation. They will feel empowered to take part in Management discussions and come up with ideas as well.

We started this prototype a couple of weeks ago and I like the signal of transparency that accompanies this one. Not a lot of people have joined since starting but I’m reminded that we need to spread the message a bit more!
