Meetings , Meetings and more meetings !
In today's class we did a mock board meeting for a hotel in london. I think the most important factor in a meeting is the leader managing the meeting or the person who requested the meeting. They are responsible for setting a proper agenda , keep track of the time and letting all people engaged. In my pervious organization, the CEO would keep talking through the meeting while giving a lot of information and was not letting the knowledge sink in and asking for reflections. If we knew what previously what the meeting was about maybe we would have prepared and then a discussion on performance can be held. I think in the future, in all the meetings i would hold I would give people enough time and information before the meeting, have a proper agenda and monitor the contribution of everyone which i never did before.
