What Comprises Effective Meeting Invitations?

Updated: Mar 27

Whether you are a seasoned professional or an employee just out of college, it never hurts to go back to the basics.


A good way to harvest new insights is to maintain a beginner’s mindset.  


This is the sentiment behind my “Back to Basics” series. We go back to the basics to refresh and perhaps find new insights. 


A great question to ask when it comes to mastering the "basics" is "How good is your company sending out effective meeting invitations?"


On August 6th, we posed the question, “Can you guess what these are?” and provided a list of 16 phrases we’ve all heard before.  


The answer to that question is: They are all symptoms of ineffective meeting invitations.  




I know. It’s an embarrassingly simple concept to master. Yet, how often have we seen the effects of ineffective meeting invitations? The answer is that too often, people don't take the time to practice the basics.  


The absence of these basics in something as simple as meeting invitations can waste time, create unneeded friction amongst employees, and delay important decision-making.  


Some additional questions to consider: 

* How much time do you want your team or company to spend answering questions like this?

* What if your competitor spends less time on these questions than your company?

* What is the productivity impact of not addressing this easy inefficiency?


The good news is that it’s an easy fix, and it behooves you to take it seriously in the training process and to drive it through your culture.
