We make goals for our projects – key performance indicators – and we measure our performance by those goals. They may be quantitative or qualitative. However, projects aren’t the only type of work that have goals; meetings also have goals. Questions to ask yourself when you go into a meeting, whether or not you are the person running the meeting, and whether or not it is a group gathering or one-on-one:
- What is this meeting meant to achieve?
- What are my personal objectives for this meeting?
- What actions will I take in this meeting to meet my objectives?
