6 Things You Need to Know About Leading a Meeting
If you don’t know how to run effective meetings, your business, your organization, and your career are doomed.
from Inc. Magazine:
“Nobody likes meetings, so if you schedule one, you’d better get something out of it. A simple formula can help ensure that a meeting won’t be a waste of everyone’s time.
Inc’s equation is as follows: “No leader + no documentation + no follow up = waste of time.” Steve Tobak explains:
Every meeting has to have a leader, a stated purpose, a start and end time, and a valid reason for each and every person to be there. The leader documents conclusions, plans, action items, whatever, then follows up.”
Do you even know what you’re doing?
Have them in the afternoon.
Beware the hive mentality.
Lose the hallway meetings.
Challenge the status quo.
