Staying on Your Feet Helps you Stay on The Agenda

  1. One of the more extreme but effective strategies I have seen is to have conference rooms without chairs.  This keeps people focused.  No one likes standing longer than they have to.
  2. Schedule the meeting to start the amount of time you want it to last just before people take lunch or end of the day.  People are more time focused when it runs the risk of using their own time.
  3. Start on Time. End on Time.  Lock the door when the meeting begins.
