Meetings That Don’t Suck!

Here are some useful tips on how to organize good, productive meetings:

  • Kill the status meeting: check-in meetings are not efficient or relevant to everyone
  • Hold one-on-one meetings sacred: more important than group meetings
  • Every meeting must have a single owner
  • Your calendar doesn’t make you important: you don’t have to sit at every meeting
  • Calendars shouldn’t postpone decisions: you should be available for decision making meetings
  • Keep meetings small: under 5 people
  • Consider the opportunity cost of every meeting
  • Treat other people’s calendars as a scarce resource
  • Escalate, don’t undermine: just move to the decision makers
  • If the meeting is over, end the meeting: if you finish early, end the meeting
  • Declare calendar bankruptcy: if need be, start over with your bookings
