5 Questions to Ask Before You Call or Attend a Meeting

CEO’s spend 67% of their time in meetings. The higher you climb in leadership, the more meeting you’ll be expected to attend.

Good meetings are important; bad meetings are a devastating time waster.

Before you decide to hold, or even attend a meeting, there are five questions you need to ask:

1. What is the purpose of the meeting?

2. Who will attend?

3. Why have I been invited?

4. What would you like me to come prepared to contribute?

5. How long will it last?

Use the answer to these five questions to determine whether attendance is truly the best use of your time.
