11 Ground Rules For Meeting Behaviors

In Eric Jacobson On Leadership, Meetings on September 17, 2017 at 5:05 am

While recently reading C. Elliott Haverlack’s new book, Unbundle It, I found his 11 ground rules for meeting behaviors to be particularly helpful:

  1. Arrive on time.
  2. Be respectful of other attendees.
  3. No phones or computers if at all possible.
  4. No leaving the meeting or getting up to walk around until scheduled breaks.
  5. No eating unless during working meal meetings (consuming beverages as appropriate is acceptable).
  6. No side conversations.
  7. Good posture.
  8. Listen intently (even if you don’t want to).
  9. Ask questions at the appropriate time.
  10. No filibustering.
  11. Take notes.
