Thoughts on Meetings

A committee is a group that keeps minutes and loses hours. — Milton Berle


Slide Show on Effective Meetings

People don’t take meetings seriously Solution: Adopt a mindset among all participants that meetings are real work. You have to make your meetings “uptime” rather than “downtime.”

Example: Put a poster on the wall of every conference room with a series of simple questions about the meetings to act as a visual reminder: Do you know the purpose of this meeting? Do you have an agenda? Do you know your role? Do you follow the rules for good minutes?  Check out the slide show.
