Make the Most of Meetings


For many employees and managers alike, meetings can have all the appeal of a trip to the dentist. Here are some tips to help make them a little less painful and a lot more productive:

Set an agenda. Let employees know what to expect. Hold regular team meetings at the same time with a familiar agenda.

Make them goal-oriented. Holding meetings at the beginning of the day or week allows managers to examine immediate challenges and determine the best way to meet them.

Keep them useful, involved and moving. Allow everyone on the team to have input while leading the discussion to prevent long-winded digressions.

Ask for advice. Get feedback from the team when making decisions.

Remember the vision. Remind the team of the vision you have for the organization and incorporate it into your weekly goals.
