3 ways to encourage meeting presentations


Today, I had a very good meeting with my team.

Here-below, some tips, I’ve discovered in HBR.

  • Don’t dominate. This not only gives others less time to speak up but also conveys that only your ideas are important. Let at least three people speak before you talk again.

 

  • Be positive. Demonstrate that all ideas are valuable by restating important points. Thank people who are usually reticent for their comments.

 

  • Ask directly. To get input from everyone, ask each person for their thoughts. Don’t do it in a confrontational way. Try, “Do you have anything to share?”
