  • 20. Rules of meeting engagement or “meeting norms” are stated standards that refer to processes, preparation and communication practices which can apply to any meeting.
  • 21. Examples of Norms For All Types of Meetings PROCESS PREPARATION COMMUNICATION Respect everyone’s time by starting and ending on time. Only one conversation at one time. Refrain from side-talk. Capture off topic items in a ‘parking lot’ and agree to discuss them later at a more appropriate time. Be present with the people you are meeting with. Use of technology. Take bio breaks as needed. Everyone is responsible for helping to stay on topic. Speak up if you feel like we’re getting off track. Challenge past assumptions and sacred cows. Address conflict head on. Look ahead to positive action. Aim for GETGO – good enough to go, not perfection. Everyone is responsible for upholding the norms. Acknowledge if you notice we are not doing so. Be prepared and come ready to engage. Read the agenda and do any pre-work ahead of time. Come empowered to make commitments for your area or function. Put aside other topics and work so you are ready to focus on the discussion at hand. Meeting material and agenda should be sent 24 hours before a meeting. Ask questions for clarification to help avoid making assumptions. Make sure everyone’s voice is heard. Balance your participation – speak and listen. Compute your airtime Listen actively to teammates without interrupting others. Clarify when you are advocating vs offering an idea. Say it now, in the room. Avoid waiting till later to raise an issue. All voices count. All opinions are valid, but offer reasoning behind your thinking. http://blog.meeteor.com/blog/meeting-norms/
  • 22. Examples of Norms Specific For Types of Conversations BRAINSTORMING CHECK-INS/STAFF MEETING DECISION-MAKING All ideas are good ideas. Build on the ideas of others. Use “Yes, and…”; avoid “No, but…” Defer judgment of ideas during brainstorming. Keep resource constraints in mind. Be concise and to the point. Be open to feedback. Share only new information, not a repeat of old information. Be sure your information is accurate. Acknowledge when you don’t have an answer but will provide it after the meeting. Share celebrations and challenges alike. We will use [consensus, consultative, majority rule, voting] as our decision making process. Each person is responsible for ensuring they understand the options and arguments before making the decision. Be willing to support a team consensus even if you initially do not agree with it. Do not push you ideas on the team after a decision has been made. Acknowledge when you are playing “devil’s advocate” to help test a decision or idea. Separate your own personal feelings from what’s best for the team / organization.
