Managing team meetings


Last Published  01 August 2012

'Not all our meetings are a waste of time - some of them are cancelled!' A new manager will spend lots of time in meetings with the team, so he or she should invest a short period of time in brushing up on meeting skills.

This tool will benefit the new manager who holds or attends meetings, which we define as: any formal or informal discussion between two or more people with (ideally) a defined objective and agenda.

Tool aims
  • To define the key elements of meetings
  • To help the new manager to prepare and hold successful meetings by using the meeting checklists provided
  • To help the new manager deal with informal meetings.
