Better Meetings

"Meetings are very much a forum. I think of them as a forum in which business gets conducted. We really make progress by meeting with other people.

We plan meetings up to three months in advance sometimes, to get the most out of them. When we go into these meetings, we know exactly what we need to know. We talk to people before the meeting starts about how they feel about the topic or question in the meeting, that way when we get to the meeting, we know exactly what they think. Then we try to rally everyone around a common answer that everyone will be satisfied with.

The more you plan your meetings, the more effective they will be, and the more people will leave your meetings feeling like something was accomplished."
