In this course, author and business coach Dave Crenshaw teaches you to get the most from your meetings—turning them into productive avenues for communicating, connecting, and accomplishing real work. The course demonstrates a simple, usable framework that will help you lead and participate in meetings large and small and provides insight into how to schedule, conduct, and follow up on meetings with minimum time and maximum results.
Whether you attended a group meeting or a one-to-one, you'll very likely come away from every meeting with action items, tasks, and projects that you need to work on. Part of the success of future meetings will depend upon your success in completing your action items. This means that if you can come to every meeting and show the other participants that you keep your commitments and you meet your deadlines, then you'll earn their trust. They'll learn they can count on you, and they'll likely give you greater respect in the workplace.
Now, just a comment to go along with that idea: when you complete an item that comes out of a meeting, report back; send an email or a note to the person you committed to and let them know that it's done. Now if you completed it just before the next meeting, of course, you can report back in the meeting itself. But it's usually helpful to other people to let them know the moment you've completed a commitment. Every time you do that, it relieves a small burden off their mind, so they don't have to wonder if you got it done.
Complete your commitments and those you work with will feel a great sense of trust, that whatever they give you, you'll get it done on time.
