Your biggest question should be: Why have a meeting? There needs to be a compelling reason.
We will review various types of meetings and define the purpose of each as well as exploring alternatives to holding meetings. Depending on your real purpose, a meeting may not be the best way to accomplish the goal. Once you determine that a meeting is the best solution there are several questions that need to be answered during the planning process. It is critical to have a good plan.
How do you determine who should attend the meeting? How can you make the meeting memorable and impactful? What should be done to follow up and ensure everyone pulls their weight and fulfills their commitments? How to build an agenda will be discussed and illustrated. The key ingredients and fundamentals of all meetings will be explained. People are all unique and need various types of interaction. We will share exactly how to deal with each major type of person in the meeting so that the good of the group is accomplished and everyone feels they have made a contribution and are valuable.
Meetings are extremely expensive when you consider the total costs, commute time, prep time, waiting, being off the job and other opportunity costs. The more people involved the more the real expense skyrockets. It pays to make them productive!
