|Rethink Your Meeting Structure|
|—Adapted from “A Simple Rule to Eliminate Useless Meetings,” Jeff Weiner, www.linkedin.com|
At LinkedIn, presentations during meetings are a thing of the past. CEO Jeff Weiner says that because they have eliminated them during meetings, they focus on valuable discourse instead. Follow their lead with this process:
- Send presentation materials prior to meeting. Any slides or data that people planned to share during a meeting are sent to participants at least 24 hours prior to the meeting. Participants are expected to study the content before joining the session. Tell employees to put the same effort into preparing the materials that they would if they were presenting in front of the group. When materials are well-prepared, it usually isn’t necessary to spend time clarifying information.
- Allow time to review the materials. At the beginning of LinkedIn meetings, everyone is provided with five to 10 minutes to read the materials. For those who haven’t read the contents, they can get up to speed. For those who have read everything, they have time to refresh their memories.
- Open the floor for discussion. Rather than having someone present the materials, focus on talking, digging deeper into the data, sharing insights and engaging in meaningful debate.
