SET GROUND RULES FOR BE­HAV­IOUR IN YOUR NEXT MEET­ING

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

It’s help­ful to start a meet­ing by agree­ing on pro­ce­dural rules like “start on time and end on time” and “put phones on vi­brate”. These can help your meet­ing be even more suc­cess­ful. The rules de­scribe spe­cific ac­tions by team mem­bers.

State views and ask gen­uine ques­tions. This rule dis­cour­ages mono­logues and ar­gu­ments, and en­cour­ages a con­ver­sa­tion in which mem­bers seek to un­der­stand ev­ery­one’s point of view.

Use spe­cific ex­am­ples and agree on what im­por­tant words mean. Ex­plain rea­son­ing and in­tent. This al­lows mem­bers to un­der­stand how oth­ers reached their con­clu­sions and see where their rea­son­ing dif­fers from yours. Jointly de­sign next steps. This en­sures that you all move for­ward to­gether as a team.
