Today let’s talk about meetings at work! Asana mission is “to help humanity thrive by enabling all teams to work together effortlessly” and that also applies to meetings! We do have a lot of resources available online (I’ve listed them below) to help you make your meetings as efficient as possible, but I’d love to learn about your experience!
What are your best tips to organise a meeting? How do you make sure to get out of your meetings with an answer/solution or at least some progression?
I believe one of the key thing for a successful meeting is to come prepared. For example, having an agenda in the meeting invitation allows every stakeholders to brainstorm and gather their thoughts in advance, which will later help saving time and bring some structure to the meeting itself. While browsing for content online, I came across this Ted Talk (both hilarious and very smart at the same time) in which David Grady talk about “MAS” (“Mindless Accept Syndrom”) and about our habit of accepting meetings the second an invite lands into your mailbox, before having a chance to ask yourself if it makes sense for us to attend.
Does that sound familiar? Do you have anything in work (training, learning resource, processes…) to help you running efficient meetings? What are your top tips?
