Are you having trouble keeping your employees engaged during meetings? Lack of interest, poor ambiance and length of the meeting could all be contributing to this problem. Thankfully, there are ways to address this. Read on for tips from 4Corners Business Centers, Inc., New York’s top office space rental company.
Only Invite People Who Are Involved
Limit the meeting to people who truly need to be there. If an employee doesn’t actually need to be in the meeting, they may feel resentful that their time could be better spent elsewhere. When they are forced to sit through a meeting that’s not relevant to their role, they lose interest and focus.
Get to the Point
Most effective meeting can be concluded in under 30 minutes. Except in specific circumstances, an hour in your meeting room rental is typically too long to keep your employees’ attention. Always send out the agenda at least a day before the scheduled meeting too. This way, the employees will come prepared, helping avoid unwanted confusion and time-consuming explanations.
Holding the meeting in a noisy coffee shop might be distracting, interfering with productivity. Instead, it’s better to conduct the meeting in a private area, especially when disclosing serious and confidential matters.
