Run an effective meeting with this starter guide

When I prepare for an effective meeting, I answer eight essential questions.

  1. Who is the meeting for and who needs to be there?
  2. What do you need to happen immediately after the meeting?
  3. What’s on the agenda?
  4. How long will the meeting last and how long is too long?
  5. What visuals do you have?
  6. What stories can you tell?
  7. Where will there be an opportunity for participation?
  8. What are next steps that attendees or participants need to deliver and to who? (follow up to answer #2)

Answering these questions will lead you to a meeting experience that is effective, goal-focused, productive and sometimes, memorable. Save them, use them and let magic happen. I guarantee effectiveness.
