The response – Meetings!
As I have shared for years – things get “amplified” or “magnified” in the remote space. This includes the good, the bad, and the disengaged.
Whether your meetings are back to face-to-face (with distance) or are virtual, what are the practices we want to focus on?
Here are six things you’ll want to keep in mind around meeting etiquette:
- Start and end on time – It’s likely that people are moving from meeting to meeting over the course of the day – so start on time and be very clear with agreements around.
- Have a clear agenda and success measures of what you want to leave the meeting with.
- Be on time. Note that some “virtual meeting rooms” will lock after a certain amount of time.
- Be present and be prepared. Take a few minutes the night before to review what meetings you have upcoming and ensure that you have done all the pre-work needed before you get on the line.
- Pause regularly to note key agreements, main points and action steps. Leave time (60 seconds, 90 seconds) for people to write things down and schedule it in.
- Wrap up the meeting on time, or even a few minutes early so people can get to their next meeting.
And as a bonus – Track accountabilities and make it memorable!!
Enjoy your next meeting!
