Listen More Than You Talk

alltalkWant to have a great meeting? Do some more listening that talking. According to Tim Sanders, this is one of the best ways to increase the value and benefit of a meeting. He goes on to say that, if anything, you should first talk before giving a presentation (allowing you to focus on the parts of the presentation that you know your listeners will care about), under answer questions (instead of over explaining), and allow for pauses between someone asking a question and answering it yourself. These little tips can help build a stronger foundation for discussion and for resolutions within meetings.
