Tips to Keep Your Meeting on Track

Keeping meetings on track

Meetings can be one of the best ways to ensure the team is all on the same page & to make sure that things are getting done as quickly & efficiently as possible but one of the new things to keep in mind is the fact that not all of them are able to stay on track. So how should one ensure that meetings stay on track & that they get everything on the agenda done? Well, Dr. Jordan Sudberg is here to give tips on how to keep it all on track & how to make sure that the meeting is as effective as possible. So, the first thing he advises is to print out an agenda & hand this to each person in the meeting. This will not only ensure that everyone knows what they are here to discuss but it will make them a bit more focused on what they are trying to accomplish in the long run. As they go down the list, it is important to check them off as they go in order to ensure that each item on the new agenda is being completed. It keeps them organized & focused, so they do not lose sight of why they came to this conference room in the first place. So, the next thing he advises is to provide each of the staff members with some sort of positive reinforcement. This can be anything from giving them a treat whenever they avoid getting off track or even just giving time off to those who help keep the meeting focused on the task at hand. But the idea here is to let them all know that they will get a reward if they stay on track & do not let anything steal their focus. This will make them much more inclined to stay on track if they feel as if there is something in it for them & it will make them a lot more content if they are able to earn this type of reward. So, the next thing that Dr. Jordan Sudberg recommends trying some sort of negative reinforcement if the other one does not work as well as they hoped. This will make them realize just how serious the head honcho is about wanting to stay on track & will make them think twice before they start to get sidetracked. Now this does not have to go as far as firing any of the people on staff but at the very least, it should have some sort of disciplinary action that makes them all understand just how important it is to keep the meeting focused & not let anything distract them from the duties at hand. So as long as they follow all of the advice he has provided, they can be sure their meetings will not only be quick & efficient, but they will also make the office run more smoothly & effortlessly in the future of the company. Meetings are essential for keeping a company on track, and these tips will help make that happen.
