Never lead a bad meeting again
I liken meeting facilitation to learning to ride a bike. At one point in our lives, a caregiver gave us the instruction and patience it took to learn to ride: pedal motion, steering, balance and braking. Unfortunately, this is not so with meeting facilitation skills, although it would have been great if we learned this art early on, it would have saved us a lot of wasted time. Some people do have a knack for people and group process, while others actually did learn this art early on, but for all the rest to whom meeting facilitation does not come naturally, there is hope, even a promise, that good meeting facilitation skills are learnable. But first, back to bad meetings. How you and I would define a bad meeting is probably similar: lack of interest, wasted time, boring, off-topic, negative behaviors (such as an overtalker or the side-converser), no clear purpose – and the list goes on. Conversely, a good meeting has a clear purpose and design, engenders appreciation and safety, has good ground rules and the right people involved, has an agenda and effective process, elicits equal participation, deals effectively with challenging behaviors and gets at desired outcomes.
