Unproductive office meetings cost your business time and money. Not only that, they irk your employees, causing them to lose faith in you and the company.
The Chicago Tribune outlines several ways to make your meetings more productive and effective:
- Set an agenda and make it available before the meeting. Throughout the meeting, keep your agenda in mind to stay on track.
- Keep it friendly. Open with a joke or a smile and keep a conversational tone throughout the meeting. And it never hurts to offer refreshments, which keep the meeting relaxed and can boost attendance.
- Invite a guest to mix things up and give a different perspective to an otherwise mundane topic.
