Do You Ever Feel You're Spinning Your Wheels In Meetings?

Focus, focus, focus! When you're in charge of a meeting, make sure it stays on target. Keep everyone's attention on the agenda, and don't let it become a forum for open-ended discussions.

A meeting can either be valuable and highly productive or a complete waste of time. It all depends on the attitude and the preparation of everyone in the meeting. The key to a successful meeting is a highly focused agenda, advanced preparation, a skilled moderator and follow up on items requested and promises made.

Don't let this week's meeting time become a social hour. Get down to business and stay there. Those who have the time can socialize later.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Synergize Color: Get Fully Engaged Quickly -- Or Get Out Gracefully.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. What was the main purpose of your last meeting? Was it achieved?
  3. Have you ever tried acknowledging side-tracked conversations, and then scheduled those matters for later?
  5. What's the purpose of your next meeting? Is it articulated as explicitly as possible?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Synergize Factor 7I? (Get Fully Engaged Quickly -- Or Get Out Gracefully.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (7I rated 8 or better) suggests you expect to achieve significant progress from every meeting. You prepare for meetings in advance to ensure you achieve the greatest progress possible, in the limited time you have together. This applies to your company meetings, team meetings, family dinners and doctor visits. The time you spend together is on time, point and purpose. You value the other participants' time, and make sure the meeting is beneficial for everyone in attendence. Your meetings are successful at reaching agreed upon courses of action -- which are implemented immediately.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who expects very little from your meetings with others. You rarely take the time to prepare properly for the meetings you lead, or the ones you attend. Instead, you prefer to wing it -- and see what direction the meeting goes. Without a solid agenda, your meetings range from brainstorming gone wild to unproductive whining sessions. Personal opinions are offered in abundance, while hard-core, researched facts are scarce. Few specific requests are presented -- and even fewer promises are made.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 7I more frequently?

You have more power. Your meetings are well prepared, and therefore, they are a valuable use of time and become highly productive.

You accumulate performance positives like "Contributive, Prepared and Collaborative" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 7I?

You have less power. Your meetings waste everyone's time.

Negatives like "Non-Participative, Irresponsible and Unprepared" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
