Having trouble accomplishing your goals during meetings? In our blog Critical Thinking: Time Is of the Essence (Part 1), Kate points out that more and more, we are wasting time scheduling unnecessary meetings and then holding “meetings after the meeting” to discuss what happened in the meeting and to schedule the next meeting.
This can all be avoided by having a property planned agenda and making sure everyone is prepared. This Happy Meeting Box is a table in a MS Word document that can conveniently be copied and pasted into your meeting invitation.
The table includes usage suggestions to guide you on the information needed to ensure you adequately set meeting expectations so that you and your team are prepared.Are you using this meeting invitation template for a facilitated session? Be sure to download our Facilitated Session Template Package for a more comprehensive checklist.
