Thoughts on Meetings

The Law of Triviality. Briefly stated, it means that the time spent on any item of the agenda will be in inverse proportion to the sum involved.

General Keys

Ensure Equal Contribution

Provide an opportunity for everyone in the meeting to contribute to the meeting. This means that when there is an agenda item that calls to have the group generate ideas make sure everyone’s ideas are heard. When you discuss an issue, everyone gets a say. That way, when you make decisions, you’ll tap into the best thinking of everyone in the meeting. This is not just about being “fair,” but rather leveraging the talents and perspectives you have brought together.
