We Have to Stop Meeting Like This

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!™ We’ve all been there: the meeting that takes an hour to accomplish five minutes of work. Learn to effectively manage your meetings to avoid this. How do you do that?

Start by creating an actionable agenda, with a preset time allocated for each topic. Everything on that agenda must be actionable toward a completion. Instead of saying, “discuss hiring a marketing coordinator,” you could say, “define the marketing coordinator’s role, and define the plan to recruit.”

Then, delegate the task of the timekeeper to a meeting attendee who will work to keep everyone on track and keep everyone to the agenda.

You are here to solve problems and move on to great opportunities. To do that, you must create effectiveness with your time.

Have a great Monday!
