1. Plan the meeting

Get your meeting on the right track before it even begins with a little prep work. It doesn't have to take over your to-do list – 10 minutes of preparation can go a long way.

2. Lead the meeting

Make the most of your time together with ground rules, great facilitation and note taking.

3. Take action on what you talk about

A meeting is only as good as the outcomes you achieve. Take the time to do something with what you talked about.

The value of effective meetings

We spend almost 50% of our time in meetings. Done wrong, that time is a real productivity killer. But done right, that together time is crucial to high-performing teams.

Meetings are your time to tackle complex problems and brainstorm amazing ideas on how to achieve your goals. If you’re clear on your plan, a productive meeting is a valuable forum for people to ask questions and share issues. From there, you can resolve problems and get everyone on the same page.
