“What was the outcome of the last meeting again?” This is a question all of us are probably familiar with. Meetings can quickly become chaotic and ineffective if clear outcomes and responsibilities are not established.
According to a recent article by ntv NEWS, “most meetings cost more than 1000 euros per hour.”
Those who know us know that we ask a single question at the end of every meeting. This simple question has proven to be extremely effective in creating clarity and accountability, and ensuring that everyone knows what steps need to be taken next.
In our experience, this method works really well. However, it also requires a certain level of discipline and commitment from all participants. If everyone is willing to contribute and stick to the agreements, meetings can become a powerful tool for business success! And to help make that happen, we have a bonus tip for you today!
Here we go. This one question is what makes meetings meaningful: who does what by when? Bonus tip: Determine the first step for completing the task right away, which should take no longer than 10 minutes, so that the task doesn’t become an elephant.
So, what are you waiting for? Try it out and let us know how it worked for you and your meetings. We’re excited to hear about your experiences! You can contact us here.
