Seven Meeting Blunders Participants Bear
Source PRWeb

To accomplish meeting objectives, start by avoiding the seven common blunders that meeting members make or allow.   These are:

1. Members do not understand the importance of their role in generating ideas, solving problems, and making decisions.
2. Attendees will not demand a written agenda with timeframes.
3. If they have an agenda, they allow random changes or rabbit trails.
4. Participants don’t use visible records of their progress during a meeting.
5. Attendees choose not to review distributed minutes for accuracy.
6. Members do not insure actions items are recorded during meeting.
7. Participants don’t commit to actions by volunteering with a completion date.

"Members, who have not had training in team building or do not understand the value of other members input, may interrupt while others are talking with their own ideas or opinions. They may also try to rephrase what someone says thinking they are being helpful or trying to manipulate statements as support for their view, when they could be wrong. These members need to be made to understand that everyone’s input is important and they should wait until the person has finished their thought to ask questions or respect the agreed upon process and do it that way until group agrees to change the process."
