5 Bits of Advice About: Running your first meeting

  1. Make sure the agenda and resources are out well in advance so people can prepare.
  2. Keep to time. A good meeting should not last more than one hour.
  3. Build time for feedback and discussion, but make sure all voices are heard. Involve the “silent voices” in your team.
  4. Don’t be afraid to cut a discussion short, for it to be revisited in future or in a different format.
  5. The people that are perceived as”blockers” are often good staff who provide important feedback. Listen to all points of view.
