MVP: Meetings should have a clear, actionable goal, in an agenda, ahead of time.
This week: five tips for better meetings!
Will you have meetings this week?
Have you ever walked away from a meeting and thought, “There’s two hours of my life wasted”?
Tomorrow’s episode of The Assistant Principal Podcast is all about meetings and it seems like such an important topic that I wanted to dedicate the whole week to the topic. The episode itself is sector-agnostic, so you don’t need to be an educator to get a lot out of it.
If you lead or work with someone who leads meetings, please pay attention this week. It could be a game-changer.
Tip #1: Have a clear, actionable goal, in an agenda, ahead of time.
When people know why they are present and have had time to prepare, they will be more invested. More importantly, a meeting should exist in order to achieve some outcome and making the outcome clear makes it more likely to be achieved.
Today’s intention: Check the meeting(s) you have this week. For which of them do you have an agenda with a goal?
