How ready are you for your next meeting?
Do you know the purpose, what will be discussed, and who’s attending?
Is the meeting necessary and what does the facilitator hope to achieve?
Have you read the pre-brief and any background materials?
Have you anticipated questions that need to be asked or problems that need to be addressed?
Will a decision be made or is the intent to make people aware?
Do you know why you and the others were invited to attend?
Shaping an outcome is much easier when you walk into a situation prepared.
