MVP: Allot time to each item in a meeting and use a timer to signal the end.
This morning’s episode of The Assistant Principal Podcast is now live! You can find it here if you aren’t already a subscriber. Michele Mattoon and I share experiences and suggestions on how to run a better meeting. Michele trains people all over the country and has loads of expertise. Again, you don’t need to be assistant principal, or even in education to get a lot out of this episode.
Tip #2: Allot time to each item in a meeting and use a timer to signal the end.
Along with this, put the most important item first!
Setting a time limit for discussion helps keep people focused. A timer that sounds has a more powerful effect than your voice on ending discussion.
If the group absolutely needs more time, there are a couple ways to handle it. Listen to the show to get them 😉.
Today’s intention: Continue thinking about your meetings and how these tips apply.
PS: We will be doing a follow-up episode focused on handling the people who wreck meetings. If you have a horror story or scenario you’d like us to cover, please send it to me.
