For staff meetings, we now use your ball system, timer and also have a sheet of paper for the "Rabbit Paddock".
It works amazingly well and makes our meetings run so much more smoothly and also cuts down the time meetings take up. It also makes the structure of future meetings easier to put together as items on the next agenda includes headings from the "Rabbit Paddock" in the previous meeting.
The "But" is being replaced a lot with "And" which I have noticed around work, though I don’t think people know they are doing it, now they just say "and" automatically.
