My Learning @ “attending the meetings”

** Every person who is required to attend the meeting shall be made aware of the agenda first. It not only makes the meeting more interactive, but at the same time it also saves the time since everyone is aware of the topics of discussion so that no would prolong the meeting by just nagging about one point.

** One should be allowed to talk on what is required to be discussed rather than what one knows, to keep the meeting more specific on the planned agenda.

** The best option is to be present in the meeting from the starting. If at all one is bound to attend a meeting from the middle, he should enter the meeting hall and it is always preferable to ask for a brief description of the topics that have been discussed in his absence. This saves half of the time as the same topics would not be repeated again and again.

** Before giving commitment for any meeting, one should double check his calendar to avoid the collision with some other tasks. One should be much planned before accepting the meeting requests. If at all his absence is inevitable for any planned meeting, it calls for one’s discipline to inform the same to the attendees.

PS: It would have already appeared to you that all the mentioned ones are the very basic points about “Attending the meetings”, but I bet, these are the simple things which can cause disasters at times when you don’t follow them. Frankly speaking, it would irritate considerable number of people when even one of the above is being neglected to follow; and the considerable number of people may include any one who is worth of.

The meetings should start and end at fixed times.Being punctual shd be insisted upon.There is no need to talk in meetings if one has nothing to contribute.Action points and the persons respnsible shd be decided during the meeting itself.The particpants shd be those who are involved in the matters discussed and not by positions held.
