5 Simple Tips for Effective Meetings
There are some very simple things you can do to ensure you run better meetings:
Invite the right people
The first tip is one of the most important: to invite the right people.
The preselection of participants should be aligned with both the subject of the meeting and the objectives.
Workers participating in each type of meeting may not be the same so we must take special care to make sure we have the right people. It’s essential.
Now that we’ve invited the right people, we must put forward an agenda that’ll indicate:
1. the topics for the meeting
2. the expected objective for each point such as Informing, Exchanging, Generating ideas, View or Decide
send or make available the necessary documentation for the participants’ preparation
In most meetings, the time allocated for a meeting is at least 1 hour.
But meetings can last less than the time we initially planned for them. How ?
With better planning ! By writing a detailed agenda indicating three things: the topics covered, by whom and how much time is allocated for each one.
The timekeeper role is to inform participants if they exceed the time allocated to them. The goal is not to do discipline, which no one likes to do but to simply inform participants as time progresses.
If all participants agree that more time should be given, then the meeting continues but it does so with full knowledge of the changed timeline.
