Take your time getting started

Everyone is happy to be at your meeting, so spend ample time chit-chatting at the beginning. Use this time to work out the bugs if you’re on a digital meeting. Remember, everyone is here for you so they’ll be happy to wait for you to start.

Kick your meeting off with a game

Nobody wants to get straight down to business. That’s why it’s important to have a fun get-to-know-you game ready to go.

Cram in the rest of the meeting

If you can’t give everyone a turn at the game, no worries. You can always finish if you have extra time at the end of the meeting.

Create a list of topics for your next meeting

As you speed your way to the end of your meeting, make sure to leave a little extra time for questions at the end.

Close the meeting

Make sure everyone knows what their homework is for next time. People want something to do so they feel like they’re part of the team.
