Effective Meetings

By Niels Lameijer on Apr 04, 2011 at 09:00 AM in Corporate Coaching Blog, General, Sustainable Alliances and Leadership

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.

Effective meetings with Niels Johnson-Lameijer

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!
