7 Rules for More Effective Meetings
I am summarizing the details from Michael Hyatt’s post, but need to have this so I can refer to it. I really would like our meetings to get here fast. For his post in detail see 7 Meetings Rules from Michael Hyatt.
- Establish hard edges.
- Create an agenda.
- State the desired outcome.
- Take written minutes
- Review the minutes and action items.
- Clarify action items.
- Determine the next meeting date
Improving the quality of meetings takes work. Every once in a while we need to step back from the meeting itself and ask, “How can we make our time together more productive?” We need to be honest. Meetings consume a lot of resources. The more efficient they are, the better the return on our investment.
