It will happen if the chair allows a few minutes of informal discussion before starting a formal meeting.

The meeting chair tries to engage section heads during break time to discuss additional agendas if any i.e. staff progress, administrative matters, etc. 

Round #6
Re-welcome all meeting participants in a fresh mood and start a discussion on the original meeting agenda. 

Specify the task’s importance and deliver keynotes to the participants and ask them to prepare their work plan to achieve the determined goals in the coming quarter. 

Distribute participants in different groups as per their experience and role in the office.
