Hello, welcome to this light up session about great meetings.
Are you thrilled by the meetings you spend your time in ? Probably not.
And like most of the people, you have the feeling that you are losing your time in meetings. Don't you?
Great meetings don't just happen automatically - they're designed for it.
Let's outline the pieces that go into a really great meeting.
First of all, we need to ask ourself.
Why do we meet?
We meet for a variety of reasons. Generally, we meet in order to move group actions forward. To do this, participants do two things in meetings:
- They present information to others.
- They collaborate - review, evaluate, discuss, problem-solve, decide - with each other.
But people also meet for social reasons:
- The need to belong.
- The need to achieve and make an impact.
- A desire to communicate, build and share a common reality.
In planning a meeting, remember that for the task needs to be met, the social needs must be met and for the social needs to be met, the task needs must be met.
You may wonder: Is it possible to satisfy both? Yes! Just plan for both; plan your meeting content and your meeting process.
The meeting content will address the task needs while the meeting process attends to social needs.
Be assured, paying attention to the process ensures that tasks get done!
Do you want to learn more about the meeting content and the meeting process?
Then, stay tune! Next time we'll explore them.
See you next time.
