Time spent in unproductive meetings means time taken away from other important tasks. In order to be successful, every business meeting needs to receive a return on investment.
Meetings are a good opportunity to generate creative ideas from a group of people who meet in order to achieve an outcome. Meetings can be extremely valuable and productive if run effectively.
What is the effectiveness level of meetings you attend?
Ask yourself the following:
- The meeting starts on time.
- The meeting is conducted in the order set out in the agenda.
- Matters arising from the previous meeting are briefly discussed.
- The agenda is distributed to all members prior to the meeting.
- Members are always aware of the time and venue of the meeting.
- All mobile phones are turned off before entering the meeting room.
- During the meeting, conversation is focused on the topic.
- Everyone listens to each other carefully and is not judgmental.
- All members are encouraged to share their opinions, ideas and suggestions.
- Only one person speaks at a time.
- Each option is individually and objectively examined in order to reach a conclusion.
- All agreements are summarised at the end of the meeting.
- The chairperson is fair, firm and decisive.
- The minutes of the meeting are distributed to all members within 2-3 days.
