We’ve all been stuck in a meeting that seemed pointless or went on too long without any purpose.
I’m here to tell you the time for that is over.
Your time is incredibly precious, and whether you’re meeting individually with your manager/direct report or your team as a whole, it’s important to have a plan for what you hope to accomplish in a meeting.
That’s exactly why I’ve created these handy templates for you to take into your meeting. Keep reading to download these templates and learn how to implement them properly.
Meeting agenda templates
These templates have been broken into two different types of meeting agendas. 1:1 meetings and team meetings are the most common you’re likely to encounter in a professional setting. For more open-ended meetings like brainstorming sessions or workshops, these agendas can be adjusted to fit your individual needs.
For managers and team leads, 1:1 meetings can keep your direct reports engaged, reduce turnover, and drive a productivity increase. In addition, a weekly or bi-weekly meeting is great for building rapport and ensuring your reports understand their role and responsibilities.
If you want to know how to run one on one meetings, this agenda can be a great foundation. Otherwise, click the button below to download a PDF file of a 1:1 meeting agenda template.
While 1:1 meetings can be pretty straightforward, larger team meetings are more prone to derailment. Cut the distractions and side chatter with a more organized agenda. This will allow everyone to quickly get the information they need and leave knowing exactly what to do.
This agenda for team meetings can be downloaded through the button below, but if you need more tips on how to lead a meeting, we have a guide for that too.
