Are You Making the Most of Your Meetings? Idea 3:

3. Make sure people come to the meetings prepared

If assignments were made at the last meeting, a good practice to follow is to check in with each staff person prior to the meeting to make sure they completed their assignments.  When you want the meeting to be an exchange of ideas, go to each of your direct reports and check in with them to make sure they are coming to the meeting with at least two good ideas.  When everyone comes to the meeting with several ideas, the conversation flows, the energy in the meeting builds and in the end, some exciting action items have been generated.
