"That Meeting Could've Been An Email"!! Sounds Familiar?

Updated: May 28, 2021

Are you the person who dreads meetings and taking time away from your own tasks, or do you enjoy the collaboration? Without clear concise directions, meetings can turn into time wasters. With everyone working remote and so many more distractions, here are a few pointers to make the most out of those remote meetings:

  1. Limit your meeting size --- the more members in the meeting can become a distraction. Identify who NEEDS to be in attendance. Designate a "note taker" who can communicate any other important information to anyone that was not in the meeting, but may be impacted by the meeting

  2. The leader of the meeting should set out a quick agenda before --- set expectations for everyone beforehand to keep the conversation on target.

  3. Encourage video --- even though you are not all sitting in the same meeting using video at least holds a level of accountability to everyone in attendance. Requires everyone to focus more and engage in the meeting.

  4. Ask for feedback --- video meetings at times can result in silence if everyone is sitting with their mute button on. Sometimes it may feel like you are pulling teeth to get folks to speak. Ask for specific feedback, direct your question to individuals specifically.

If orchestrated correctly, remote meetings can be just as successful to the team than an in person meeting. If your meetings aren't going as smoothly as you'd like, put out a survey to your team asking for feedback. Best way to empower a team is to get their ideas and solutions!
