Inthe average employee spent 31 hours in unproductive meetings. It seems that not many people know how to have a meeting that everyone enjoys. Here are four ways to tell, and three tips for changing how you do meetings so they are more effective. Were the meetings productive? Was there value in the meetings? Instead, this is an opportunity to learn how to have a meeting that is productive for everyone.
A good way to tell if this is happening is by noting how much you have to follow up with employees afterward. This could take the form of having to send them s or meet with them one-on-one. Meetings are supposed to be a way for team members to collaborate and clarify projects and tasks, receive status updates, or allow people to discuss any changes, frustrations, or accomplishments.
A few follow-ups may be necessary. But, if you have to do it constantly, it means that time is being wasted somewhere along the way. To cut down on confusion and need for follow up, outline specific points that should be covered during a meeting, and share that with everyone. Be vigilant along the way that those points are being covered. Then, thoroughly check in with participants to make sure they understand what is being discussed or decided.
Twenty to thirty minutes is a more desirable length to have a meeting. Can you cover what you need to say in an ? Does the whole team need to be there, or just the most relevant members for the project at hand? These questions can help you decide if a meeting is truly required, or a waste. Asking for feedback after meetings is helpful, but asking for input beforehand to see if a meeting is worth having may be a better option. This can save you and your employees precious time. It also gives you data around what employees feel is important or unimportant when it comes to holding team meetings.
Even if part of your team is remote, you can still make it easy for them to participate by using tools like GoWall or Voicera. Choosing a note based system like GoWall lets you see individual comments from attendees, which can be anonymous or notcomplete with a record of who agrees or disagrees with that feedback. It all happens in real time during the meeting.
You can also try an AI-backed recording system like Voicera to take an audio snapshot of the meeting. It helps you hear loud and clear which team members feel comfortable enough expressing support for different proposals and ideas. Keeping your meetings shorter and on topic will encourage participation from your employees. People are able to focus better for short periods so that will increase the effectiveness of participants too. As mentioned, having an agenda sent out before the meeting can help you stay on the task at hand. But also remember to let all team members add in their thoughts, without dragging out the meeting.
Now, your team can be productive, save time, and focus on the most important tasks and topics at hand. I'm Max, and I love helping businesses we work with expand their businesses online.
