5 Key Tips For Running A Successful Meeting – Lighthouse Consulting Services
This month, our Keeping On Track article is entitled, "5 Key Tips For Running A Successful Meeting". Meetings are usually helpful to make sure everyone is on the same page, for brain storming or for just checking in to see how things are going. They can be inspiring, frustrating, time consuming and costly. So we thought we’d share some ideas that can help in making each meeting a productive one! Please feel free to share this article. Why not have a meeting about having a meeting and discuss the ideas in our article!
I came across this article recently in the Wall Street Journal titled, “Where’s the Boss? Trapped in a Meeting” that made it sound like CEOs weren’t productive and spent large amounts of time in meetings, at lunches and traveling, with as little as six hours per week working solo. But why are hours spent working solo an indicator of being productive? Meeting time versus working solo time has little to do with productivity. The issue is not the sheer amount of meeting time, it is whether that meeting time (or any time) is impactful in increasing the enterprise value of the firm. Every minute a CEO or key executive spends is a minute gone by. Each minute must be invested wisely.
