How To Deal With Meeting Killers
When it’s time for a meeting, most companies have them: co-workers
that hijack discussions, wander off topic, send texts, disrupt
decision-making or behave in other dysfunctional ways.
five most common disrupters come under these categories:
Crime: greatly overestimates value
of his/her personal views
Modus operandi: disrupts discussion and
induces information overkill
Level: first degree nuisance
The Quiet Plotter
Modus operandi: remains quiet
at meetings, later undermines bosses and decisions
Modus operandi: waits until consensus is
almost reached and derails meeting with major objections
first degree nuisance
inflicts death by boredom
Modus operandi: takes discussions to
far-away places so people forget why they're there
assault with a deadly punchline
Modus operandi: cracks jokes
(appropriate or not) and awaits response from others
Meetings are supposed to be a time of
creative problem solving, where the best ideas emerge. Yet even some
of the best managers have a difficult time running them.
The following advice from executives, meeting planners and trainers,
for accomplishing productive meetings that'll get more done include:
the number of meetings scheduled.
a clear agenda.
Impose a "no device" rule or schedule periodic tech breaks for
e-mail, texts and phone calls.
Redirect people back to the agenda when they ramble or digress.
Draw out quiet people by asking them in advance for a specific
Do a "round robin" when appropriate, to allow everyone to
Ask early for objections to keep them from derailing discussions
Limit the length of slide presentations.
Interrupt people who talk too long or talk to each other.
Set an ending time for the meeting and stick to it.
Priority Check On Time Management
One manager found a unique exercise for driving home the importance
of time management. She hands all department employees a check
(fake, of course) made out to them for $86,400, giving them 24-hours
to "spend" the money.
In a meeting the next day, members
share how they plan to spend the money. When the exercise is over,
the leader notes that most people spent every penny of the check.
She then informs them that each day has the same number of
seconds as the check has dollars — 86,400 — and asks,
"Why are we so much more likely to prioritize how we spend our money
than our time?"

To Gain Trust … Be Yourself
People don't leave companies; they leave managers … so the
saying goes. To start on the right foot with new employees, spend
time with them individually.
Spell out what's important to
you, why you do the things you do, and what you believe in. In other
words, tell them what they can measure you by in the future.
In turn, they will begin to reveal themselves to
you. In the process, you’ve established a basis for trust.
(From Living the 7 Habits,
by Stephen R. Covey.)
