Shared team practices could include:
- Weekly team meetings
- A monthly pot-luck meal (virtual or in person)
- Getting together monthly to share information about programming and focus areas
- Informal and/formal peer learning events
One of the main vehicles teams use for communication is meetings. As many find, meetings may not be held most efficiently or effectively. Next week I’ll share more on meeting pitfalls.
In today’s post, I wanted to remind you of the 8 Essential Meeting Questions I share in Effective Virtual Conversations. These are questions you will want to get in the practice of asking before each conversation you have:
- What’s the purpose?
- What takeaways do we want?
- Who needs to be on the calls?
- What preparation is needed for us to be most effective in the meeting?
- What pace do we want in order to keep it engaging?
- What will help keep the focus?
- What is absolutely essential (versus what will be a nice to cover) where people can go for more information?
- What follow-up might be required?
As you consider your meetings and/or team practices, what is important to note? To adjust as you step into September?
