Meetings, Meetings, Meetings…Stephanie Yang

Meetings, Meetings, Meetings…Stephanie Yang

In my business classes, I had learned about effective meeting planning. I was taught how to have good meetings. As I took notes on the material, I thought to myself “a lot of this is basic knowledge.” But as I was exposed to real meetings, I found that it might all be a basic knowledge that is unknown to many. Thus, the feeling of walking out of an effective meeting is extremely gratifying. My personal ‘after meeting satisfaction.’

Having worked with a number of different groups, I’ve had numerous meeting experiences; some better than others. Yesterday, I walked out of a meeting with an iMADdu partner and it was one of the best meetings I’ve had thus far with iMADdu. Today I pondered on why it was such a good meeting and I mentally compared it with the worst meeting experience I had in my life with another organization.

Here is a list of the differences I found…

Yesterday’s iMADdu meeting…

  • Had a purpose
  • Both parties prepared for the meeting and came in ready to work
  • Followed an outline/points of discussion
  • New information was exchanged
  • Notes were taken
  • Included a recap of main points
  • Time-bound
  • Stayed on topic

I’m going to make note of these differences for future reference.
