3 Things You Can Do to Hold More Effective Meetings

3 Things You Can Do to Hold More Effective Meetings

Do you ever feel like your business’ meetings simply don’t go as planned? These are often the most dangerous kind of meetings, as employees who have better things to do may find that meetings aren’t a great way of using their time (or their skills) properly. If you are having meetings that just seem like a waste of time, it’s your responsibility to start thinking about how you can improve them. Here are a few tips:

Have Better Agendas
How does your business currently conduct meetings? Perhaps you go in with a specific topic in mind, or maybe they are weekly meetings that are held whether you have something of substance to say or not. Either way, it’s best to go in with an agenda (and stick to it) if you want the most productive meetings.

Use Better Technology
Technology can give your meetings a kickstart when they are otherwise simply people sitting around a table and having a chat. You can use media, including slideshows and infographics, to provide context for the conversation. Furthermore, if meeting in the office isn’t an option, you can implement mobile technology and web conferencing software to keep your team connected regardless of where they are located.

Hold an Open Forum
People like to feel involved in meetings, and they will enjoy them more when their involvement means something. You can open up your meetings at the end for people to voice concerns or make statements. This can, in turn, open up a dialogue that may not otherwise have been created.
