Looking to improve your meetings? Here are 5 tips.
1️⃣ Have a clear agenda
Ask yourself these two questions:
1. What questions do you need to have answered?
2. What is your ideal outcome?
Write your answers down, bring them to your meeting, and make sure you get these addressed before your meeting ends.
2️⃣ Set an end time and keep it
Be clear about how much time you have when scheduling. It’ll help everyone prepare and make the most of your meeting.
3️⃣ Start your meeting with your purpose and meeting length
Don’t expect everyone to remember. Clarity will help everyone reorient and get in the right headspace.
4️⃣ End your meeting with clear directions
Save the last 5-10 minutes to confirm everyone’s next actions and time frames to make sure everyone is clear about how the project will move forward. Set an alarm if needed to keep the meeting on schedule.
5️⃣ Give yourself cushion between meetings
If you can, give yourself at least 15 minutes between meetings, so you won’t be stressed if a meeting runs over and worried about keeping your next meeting waiting. Give yourself time to reset and prepare for success.
