Meeting Moves

Some meeting ideas to test in the coming weeks, courtesy of Steven G. Robelberg in HBR:

  • Assess meetings through a mix of self assessment (always) and surveys of meeting attendees (sometimes). Assume there’s a gap between how you see your meetings and how others do.
  • Break meeting routines: mix up the location, timing, seating, or mode.
  • Cancel some of your routine meetings but keep them on the calendar, reminding others that they have some found time to work or think deeply.
  • Think like a steward at the start of the meeting (welcoming people into the space and time) and a facilitator during the meeting (allowing others to speak and think out loud).
  • Give people time in meetings to read . . . or time to write before they share.
