As more and more people are working from home during the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is becoming common to spend a major portion of the day in meetings, video calls [1].

Effective meetings should deliver clear direction to all involved for the next step. It is important to involve all in the discussion because the assumption is that all members are selected thoughtfully. These are six important things to follow for effective meetings.

Before the start of the meeting, start gently with the light, off-the-topic discussion, imaging as you are coming to the meeting room after fetching coffee.

  • Purpose
  • Preparation
  • Enable participation
  • Start time/end time
  • Conclusion
  • Follow-ups
