Ask yourself this question while preparing for a meeting

The ultimate magic answer to meeting success, falls with the meeting preparation and one powerful question. Discover the question as well as the answer in this post.

All too often, we leave meetings without accomplishing all that needs to be done; and consequently, we have to schedule another meeting. Why is this the case? Was the meeting agenda unclear? Was there too much on the agenda? Should there have been material circulated before the meeting to prepare the attendants? Was everyone in attendance that should have been?

These questions might help discover the secrets of a successful meeting, but the ultimate magic answer to actual meeting success, falls with the meeting preparation and one powerful question:

What is the single most important item to accomplish in this meeting?

Notice “single”—one, not two, not ten, but one. Defining the answer to this question will help you plan effectively. It will not only help you determine where and how long the meeting should last, it will help you figure who should attend.
