Have a purpose. Don’t just meet to meet
Have a Plan – What do you want to accomplish in the meeting? The meeting starts before the start time for you!!! You must prepare.
Have Handouts – always put an agenda in front of everyone you are leading so they can take notes and see where the meeting is going.
Coach your team – when meeting w/ students or a large group of people be sure you have “something worth hearing” so that they are challenged.. all great coaches coach their team not just show up and make calls!!!
Have a take away – What are “the people” suppose to do?
Follow up – is the team doing what you asked them to do? Inspect what you expect. Expect little and you will get little. Expect a lot and you will get a lot.
Be thorough in the meeting. When it is general no one leaves with a take away..
