  1. Ask the participants to help review and approve the agenda, using your organization’s enterprise social network (ESN). This will give them some ownership of the meeting and ensure that it meets their needs.
  2. Test each agenda item: could this be just done just as well in some other way? If so, don’t include it in the meeting. Make each agenda item include interaction, specific planning, decision making, and/or action.
  3. Make meetings fun, including non-work discussions, humor, and food.
  4. Keep meetings short and efficient. When the agenda items are completed, end the meeting.
  5. For recurring meetings, if there is no need to meet that day, cancel the meeting.
