“People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything” (Thomas Sowell)

 

I came out of a brilliant meeting yesterday.

It was15 minutes long.

I knew in advance that my boss was short of time, so to make the meeting go well I did a few things that helped:

  • I referred to the planning tool I use to sort items into date due order
  • I prioritised items I knew I needed to raise with her
  • I got to the point within my deadline
  • I acknowledged with her that I knew time was of the essence, and that I was going to move quickly through items

Not essential for every time we meet, I know, but on this occasion it really worked, and enabled me to get answers to what was pressing.

What might you do to improve the quality of your get-togethers?
