Are you a manager? Do you ever set up a quick meeting with your employees? If you do, is a meeting agenda included for that meeting? Do you want to have “quick meetings” with your boss?
In our research to build Bella Scena, we asked many people about their biggest pain points with meetings. One topic that came up over and over again is how individuals feels about “quick meetings” with their manager that have no agenda. Most people think these meetings mean they are getting fired! “Quick meetings” have a tendency to derail us from whatever we are doing for fear of what is coming. They are a real productivity killer.
We’d encourage you to include an agenda for your employees, particularly for these quick little meetings. It helps the employee know what is going on, and help keep emotions in check so that productivity is not disrupted.
