Meeting Skills Tips

Ten reasons why meetings fail

  1. No agenda = no purpose
  2. No advance communication = surprising behaviors/responses
  3. Not encouraging participation = no interaction
  4. No time management = cost to organisation – time is money
  5. Allowing conflict to get out of control = chaos
  6. Not reaching consensus = waste of time and company resources
  7. Allowing sub meetings = no focus or direction
  8. Not controlling difficult behavior = everyone becoming difficult
  9. Not summarizing actions = misunderstanding of next steps
  10. Not motivational = attendees leave feeling flat and despondent
