Meetings

8 Apr

We all attend lots of meetings. I believe if it can’t be done in one hour then the agenda needs to be reconsidered. Here are my favorite tips to have an effective meeting.

  1. Show up on time. Showing up on time is probably the easiest thing to take responsibility for and fix, yet it has remained on the list of annoying meeting behaviors. I get so frustrated by people turning up to meetings coffee in hand after the scheduled time.
  2. Pay attention to your body language. Next time you go to a meeting, try observing the body language of everyone around the room. Are they paying attention, making eye contact, leaning forward, and taking notes? Are they using there computer?
  3. Stop with the side comments. When someone else is talking or presenting, seeing someone make a side comment to their neighbour can be incredibly distracting and annoying.
  4. Come prepared This one is my personal pet peeve. When we all leave a meeting with action items, there is an expectation that everyone comes to the next meeting with completed homework assignments.
  5. Bring food. When all else fails, bring yummy snacks to your meetings especially the Murray Fudge!!!!!!
