Too often, we are in big meetings without the single most important tool that can guarantee meeting success. A successful meeting is one that meets the purpose and goals intended. I am talking about the kind of meeting where you end up with lots of post it notes on the wall, brainstorm lists everywhere, a large parking lot, and yet no one can say we met the purpose or that anything meaningful happened. The results are often more meetings of the full group, or subgroups to, sort through what actually happened. There is a solution to avoid this scenario. That is a meeting facilitator.
