Effective Meetings

Effective Meetings

By Niels Lameijer on May 31, 2018 in Corporate Coaching Blog

I recently gave a presentation on meeting management. In my career I have been in hundreds and hundreds of meetings, most of them much longer than needed and horribly inefficient.

Santa Barbara Corporate Coaching: Effective Meetings

There are many ways you can make your meetings more efficient, clear agenda's, set ending time, invite only people that are truly needed, have a good facilitator who leads the meeting. There is ONE ground rule you can start applying today that can make a significant and positive difference to all your future meetings:

Never EVER agree to a meeting that does not have a clear objective (communicated to all parties involved).

Have an agenda emailed to you beforehand so you (and the other participants) can prepare and have an efficient meeting.

Happy meetings!

As I said at the meeting, I had never had a facilitator for a meeting like this (strategic, offsite board meeting). It was incredibly valuable having you there.
