Improve your team meetings

Jamie Notter of of GetMeJamieNotter has posted some great advice for improving team meetings. My favorite among his five suggestions is:


    Finish it

    Don’t open up the conflict, let everyone get uncomfortable, and then say you’re out of time and we’ll deal with this later. You have to take the conversation through to some kind of closure—even if it is temporary, and it has to be okay with all the parties in the conflict. This means your meeting may not always follow its agenda. Deal with it. It’s easier to deal with an unfinished agenda than the long-term effects of unfinished conflict.
