Amish podiums and lecterns can be focal points of a conference room

by Tom Grimes

Any employer knows that meetings can be a key to productive and united teamwork. However, creating a compelling environment that keeps workers involved can be difficult, particularly with rooms that don't have a place that is conducive to those who are speaking or giving presentations.

A space that consists of little more than a table can feel like it lacks momentum and a central focus. The trick is to design a conference room so that the entire group is participating, but one speaker at the time is given undivided attention.

That's why it can be important to find an addition to the area that can draw attention in a subtle and dignified way. Meetings should be professional yet relaxed, and the space should reflect those attitudes.

Pieces of Amish office furniture can bring an element of tradition to any working environment, but won't make it so formal that employees feel pressured or stressed.

Conference rooms can be furnished with an Amish podium or lectern, which can give a speaker the poise and dignity that is required during a meeting.

All of these pieces are available in a variety of different solid woods that can bring a natural, warmth to the room without sacrificing any of the formal attitude that is often required during serious discussions.
