We had an important meeting today.
The whole meeting was important.
- To set a time for the meeting to end
To create a facilitator or someone to take on that role
To share the agenda with everyone in real time.
I believe this is important.
It is also important for those attending the meeting to
- If you are going to speak, have a summary of what you are going to say and what you are thinking.
- Be prepared to take notes.
I believe that this is the most important thing.
I believe the most important of these is to decide when to end the meeting.
Or rather, this is the most difficult to follow.
If there is little awareness of the importance of keeping an ending time, nothing is decided until it is time to end the meeting, and it may end up being just a discussion.
I have heard that many companies with many meetings are bad companies, but redundant meetings are useless, and meetings can be meaningful depending on how they are conducted.
I have seen many employees who are careful when a part-time worker is absent for a short period of time, but continue to hold meetings that go on and on without knowing what the purpose of the meetings are for.
Time is money.
We want to make the meetings as meaningful as possible.
