Meetings Matter | Paul Axtell
Paul Axtell’s book is worth having on your shelf as a reference and learning guide to improving your meetings – whether you are in charge of them or not. Consider the total investment of the attendees by their hourly rate, and you have some idea of the benefits of this book. Three ideas to play with right now:
- Listen for when clarity is missing and ask a question that causes clarity to emerge
- Complete each agenda item with action steps, timelines for them and responsible parties
- Be vigilant about the agenda. Keep it small and include the items that belong in this room at this meeting.
