Ahhh meetings…the place where so much time is wasted, never to be recovered again. While, in my experience, half of them are entirely useless, at times it is essential to bring the right people together to make decisions, take actions and move forward.
When it comes to inviting people to join a meeting here are a few types you shouldn’t invite:
- Unrealistically positive – everything is always wonderful to them which indicates detachment from reality and unwillingness to face the facts and deal with them.
- Always negative – no need to explain why they shouldn’t be part of your business at all. Mental and emotional drag on everyone else.
- Don’t speak – those who don’t contribute shouldn’t be included in the process.
Is there a 4th type that I may have missed?
