Better Meetings

Some good suggestions from Seth Godin about making meetings different and more effective. I will be implementing some if not all of them Tuesday. A few of the ideas:

3. Require preparation. Give people things to read or do before the meeting, and if they don’t, kick them out.

4. Remove all the chairs from the conference room. I’m serious.

6. Bring an egg timer to the meeting. When it goes off, you’re done. Not your fault, it’s the timer’s.

7. The organizer of the meeting is required to send a short email summary, with action items, to every attendee within ten minutes of the end of the meeting. (Grrr! OK.–KB)
