Setting Ground Rules For Meetings

Posted by Tom Locke on March 31st, 2012 filed in Business

In setting up ground rules for meetings be sure that those participating in the meetings have the opportunity to suggest, discuss and approve the ground rules.

Successful ground rules are behaviour based where issues are attacked, not individuals.  The past is not dwelled upon as the future is the focus.  Complementing this are 3 things:

  1. Have an agenda and stick to it.
  2. Think creatively and openly.  Have a wilingness to share.
  3. Work towards solutions and results, not processes.
