How to Lead an Effective Meeting (And Get the Results You Want) – Doctor’s Edition

Today’s doctors must spend an enormous amount of time on activities unrelated to patient care. Learning to run effective meetings allows doctors to allocate more of their time to patient care – the reason they chose medicine in the first place.

In the Doctor’s Edition of the book How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want), co-authors Dick Massimilian and Ron Blumoff, MD, give their insight into how doctors can lead more effective meetings that achieve the intended results.

Take Charge of Your Meetings

It seems these days that everyone hates meetings. But when you talk to people, it isn’t that they hate meetings; it’s that they don’t like meetings in which nothing gets done. No one is sure why the meeting was called, or why half the people are in the room, or what exactly is supposed to get done, or what was decided. We complain about meetings, but we seem to attend more and more of them.

How to Lead an Effective Meeting (and get the results you want) is for people who need to lead effective meetings, in any context. It is a blueprint for how to have your meetings work, defined as, meetings that achieve the results you want to achieve, in the meeting and afterward. It’s a how-to guide for using the time you spend planning, organizing and conducting meetings wisely. It’s about getting results through meetings.

Why Are Effective Meetings Important?

Meeting quality matters. Well-run organizations have well-run meetings. Sloppily run organizations have sloppily run meetings. What are the signs of a bad meeting? The meeting starts late. There is no agenda. The meeting runs over. No one is sure what if anything was decided or accomplished. The same meeting to discuss the same topic seems to be held over and over again. No one knows what the next steps are or who is supposed to follow up whom for what. Nothing discourages people, whether volunteers or employees, like feeling they are wasting their time. Too many meetings waste time. They sap morale, and leave people frustrated or irritated. This is a shame, as leading an effective meeting is not rocket science once you have a blueprint.
