Taking the time to prepare for meetings provides a higher likelihood that they will be excellent. Taking the time to prepare will help us to:
• Be more organized
• Better steward the time
• Have what we need in place to actually accomplish necessary tasks
In working with others, there are a million and one things we might want to discuss and accomplish. However, it is often impossible to discuss and do everything as quickly as we would hope. We must prioritize the things that are priority.
Preparing well helps us to create priorities and guardrails for the things that matter most in our meetings and gatherings. Preparing a meeting agenda that outlines the priority items and how long they will be discussed can be very helpful. Provided below is a Meeting Agenda Template to help you do just that.
