Do you feel frustrated at crappy, time-wasting meetings?
Here are three rules you can follow to make your meetings more actionable and less sucky:
Rule #1: Every meeting must have an agenda
If it doesn’t have an agenda, it isn’t a meeting.
Rule #2: Every meeting must have a meeting owner
If it doesn’t have a defined meeting owner, it isn’t a meeting.
Rule #3: The meeting owner should create the agenda
The meeting owner should spend at least as much time writing the agenda for the meeting as is scheduled for the meeting.
45-minute meeting? Spend 45-minutes working on the agenda.
If you follow these three rules, you’ll notice your meetings will be less sucky and more productive.
