In this week’s episode I talk about 6 types of outcome that I believe are good reasons to have meetings.
Spoiler: A meeting should rarely be held simply to inform participants or stakeholders.
The exception to this practice is when the information is highly sensitive or complex, or stakeholder buy-in is needed.
Meetings primarily centered on information sharing should be replaced by an email or memo.
Join me in this conversation as I distill the 6 main types of outcomes that justify booking time for people to sit together and what you want to define ahead of time:
- The subject of the meeting as part of the invitation you send out
- The structure of the meeting
- The role of each participant
- Who should attend.
- Who should not attend.
Be the challenger that your organisation is waiting for and disrupt how meetings are run and help make organisations more efficient and more fun!
