Are you Making the Most of Your Meetings? Idea 2:

24 Apr

2. Make sure everyone is in attendance

It would be nice if attendance could always be mandatory.  However, that is not reality.  Setting aside time for a meeting and not having people show up is disrespectful and chips away at the vibrancy of a team.

Set up in advance an expectation that if someone can’t attend a meeting, a substitute will come instead.  Substitutes can be identified at the very onset of a project, that way, substitutes will feel as if they are a chosen contributor as opposed to a last-minute fill in.
