Meetings are vitally important – if done well. Meetings help people feel included, trusted, and that they are important team members, as well as giving them the opportunity to contribute to the success of our companies.Meetings and individual one-on-one conversations are fuel that runs our companies.Our organizational culture is critically important and drives the consistency of our success, or lack thereof.Meetings give important opportunities for our team members to contribute their ideas and also letting them know our expectations, needs and wants from them.Unfortunately, a lot of meetings, well, most, are ineffective. We speak with literally hundreds in the workplace each year as we are facilitating our leadership coaching and assessments of organizational culture and leadership .
Meetings are part and parcel of every organization. It’s a way for employees to gather, exchange ideas, share feedback, and learn from each other. But team meetings also get a bad rep. Not everyone comes ecstatic to a meeting. Most of the time employees even dread the thought of team meetings. But this is because they don’t see the benefit of it and it’s probably because of how the meetings are held.
If you’re having meetings for meeting’s sake then you’re wasting everyone’s time including yours. Effective team meetings are not difficult to achieve but they do require skill and structure to pull off. Effective team meetings will help your team deliver quality work much faster and chart on a better path together. It will also help you showcase your leadership skills. But why do we need to have effective team meetings in the first place? And how does one conduct an effective meeting?.
