Conducting Productive Meetings

Meetings are an unavoidable aspect of getting projects done. But they don't have to be painful. This slide presentation will help you evaluate you current meeting practices and get the most out of this process.

While some of the most effective meetings are the meetings you realize that you don't need to have (see the first bulleted item below), most meetings are not just unavoidable but absolutely necessary. You want them to be focused, clear of purpose and of utmost value to the attendees.

This PowerPoint slide show offers these steps to achieving those objectives:

  • Don't meet (i.e., know when you should communicate by other means, or not at all)
  • Set specific meeting objectives
  • Provide an agenda in advance
  • Assign meeting preparation
  • Assign action items
  • Examine your meeting process. What worked? What went wrong?

The slide show explores each item in greater detail, allowing you to maximize the effectiveness of those important meetings. This includes recommendations on how to reign in the "verbose" and better control meeting time lengths. It'll even coach you on how to deal with the occasional "difficult" personality that crops up now and then in every organization.
