Big 5 Tips to Run Productive Meetings for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

The big 5 tips weekly post is as always full of advice and tips for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses owners.Check them out ,then share with a friend.
1.      Have fewer meetings. Get together for very important reasons only: to identify a problem, solve a problem or dispense information to a group. Do away with a meeting if the only reason to have it is that it’s a Monday morning, unless it’s an informal gathering to simply stay in touch with the staff.
2.      Prepare so you can focus. Use an agenda as the tool to keep focused on the issues to be dealt with. Send out an agenda in advance if possible.
3.       Keep the number of people at the meeting as small as possible while still including everyone who needs to be there. A meeting becomes more complex with more people.
4.       Decide on who will run the meeting in advance and how others will get feedback from the meeting.
5.      Physically set up the meeting. Arrange the configuration of the room, where various people should sit to enhance the meeting objective. To make the meeting more effective use the board room or a neural place.
