Ok, you have decided that a meeting is needed. To get the most out of your meeting, the first step is to create a meeting agenda and share it in advance with everyone. If you have determined a meeting is needed, then it is worth planning ahead. Why?
Whether a small business owner, or a manager in a company, meetings are probably a part of your weekly or daily routine. Unfortunately, the practice of holding meetings can get unwieldy, reducing productivity. The critical question is “to meet or not to meet?” Following are some ideas to consider when deciding on whether or not to conduct a meeting.
Overall, any meeting should be problem specific with the intent to solve it, decisions that have to be made, or information that you need that can not be shared easily by other methods. If there is no decision to be made or specific goals and objectives to be reached as a result of the meeting then you probably don’t need one. Avoid the temptation to hold a meeting just to meet. (In another blog we will share ideas on how to hold an effective meeting.)
