Managing by influence is not easy. One way to ease your job is to be likable. It is an art more than science.
One small trick I learned from a fellow product manager was that he always played music at the beginning and end of team meetings. It was a nice gesture creating a friendly atmosphere. This was his track.
I don’t do it all the time, but if you do, be careful if you have overly serious attendees. They won’t like it and might have opposite effect.
What would be your track?
