Now that summer has ended, your schedule is probably filling up with lots of meetings. Here are our top five tips for running effective meetings:

  1. The Three D’s: Discuss, Decide, Do. 
  2. Walk and Talk. Walking meetings are when some of our best ideas and aha moments come to us.
  3. Have a (realistic) meeting agenda. 
  4. Parking lot it. Have an issue that can’t be resolved right now or needs more information, parking lot it for the future.
  5. Have a designated notetaker.
