How to run effective meetings

Do you ever organise or attend meetings that fail to accomplish as
much as you had hoped? Here are some tips to help you streamline your
approach and heighten productivity levels:

1. Failing to plan is
planning to fail – set a flexible agenda to encourage participants to
focus on what they want to achieve in the meeting

2. A precious
five minutes – split long meetings into smaller, topic-based chunks to
increase attendee concentration, and keep an eye on the clock to make
sure you stick to time limits.

3. Recognising the right ideas –
ask attendees to submit suggestions anonymously before the meeting so
the best proposals, rather than the strongest characters, are heard

4.
Worthy of note – nominate someone to record and distribute the minutes of
a meeting, to document decisions and confirm action points

5.
The door is always open – set aside time at the end of a meeting for
employees to see you on a first-come, first-served basis; great for
solving issues or quickly answering queries.
