Effective Meetings

After participating a (phone) meeting that was not worth spending the money for the IP traffic, I’ve sent a mail to all participants referring to the following post: Tips for Running Effective Meetings.

  • Email an agenda 24 hours in advance
  • Arrive 5 minutes early
  • Come prepared
  • Bring paper and a pen
  • Start and end on time
  • Stay on topic
  • No interrupting
  • No smartphones
  • Be brief and concise
  • Share all relevant data
  • No side conversations or comments
  • Disagree without being disagreeable
  • Everyone participates
  • Silence = Agreement
  • Challenge ideas rather then people
  • Follow-up email within 24 hours

Looking at all those points I need to work on some of those points 🙂
