How to Have a Meeting, Google-Style

How to Have a Meeting, Google-Style

by Frank Roche on September 29, 2006

in Communication, Teamwork

I saw this reference to How to Run a Meeting Like Google on Micro Persuasion. Interesting points in an interview with Melissa Mayer, vice president of search products at Google, who reportedly holds 70 meetings a week. She offers six pointers on what makes a “good meeting”:

  • Set a firm agenda.
  • Assign a note-taker.
  • Carve out micro meetings.
  • Hold office hours.
  • Discourage politics, use data.
  • Stick to the clock.
  • I’d add one more to the mix: Meetings are meetings, and don’t confuse them with actually DOING things. Meetings are about making decisions. As Sarah reminds us here (in the words of her favorite Jedi): Say not, do.
