Remember that great party you went to? Yeah, the one where the music was pumping and everyone was having fun, the one that you could stop talking about for days after. What really made that party fun? The fact that everyone was having fun.
A great meeting is like a great party, where everyone participates. Everyone contributes to the discussion and follows the set rules and willingly works towards achieving the deliverable. (Perhaps not everyone is having fun.)
There will be positive and negative contributions, as all voices and opinions are shared. Attendees speak up and say what they think. They want to be heard. At the end of it, everyone leaves thinking that the meeting was a good one. I voiced my opinion. I was listened to and I contributed to the deliverable.
What was the last great meeting that you went to? Tell me…What made it a great meeting?
