You want to get the most out of your meetings but aren’t sure how.
Keep this simple equation in mind to make sure you get the most bang for your buck out of every meeting you have:
No Leader + No Documentation + No Follow Up = WASTE OF TIME
This tip, from management consultant Steve Tobak, highlights exactly what you need to remember to achieve meeting greatness.
- Leadership – Who is leading the meeting? Who is facilitating the discussion?
- Documentation – Is someone taking notes? Do you have a recorder?
- Follow Up – Who’s accountable for what? Is someone responsible for following up?
Though Tobak’s equation may seem obvious or overly simple, that’s its true beauty. If you can ensure that you and your team have those three things in place, you’re on your way to better, more effective meetings. Immediately.
