Do you plan your meetings?
Perhaps you just turn up and hope they have a good outcome? When I worked in corporate life, I was amazed how many meetings I had to attend that didn’t have a good outcome. Half the time I didn’t even need to be there.
Wasted time always follows poor planning. A one hour meeting with 14 attendees is the equivalent to 2 days lost production so, if they are organising or attending a meeting make sure its valuable to the business.
You know what I’m going to say… do the planning!
Meeting planning is just as important as sales planning or business planning. Zero planning means wasted time, effort, money and added frustration! Don’t forget, if you are an attendee do your planning before turning up.
My top tips for planning effective & efficient meetings:
I guarantee that if you pre plan your internal meeting you’ll save hours and hours of time.
Don't forget to give external meetings the same degree of planning. Do you need to be there and what value can you add or take away?
