Let's Have Great Meetings! - Deborah Nicholson, Software Freedom Conservancy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The FOSS community has lots of meetings. Team meetings, working group meetings and stakeholder meetings set the stage for your work as a group, but unfortunately many of us attend meetings that feel like a complete waste of time. Meetings that meander off-topic, that repeatedly drift back to the same unresolved topic, or end up turning into a monologue don't foster great team work. Once poor habits are established, it can feel difficult to reclaim a wasteful weekly or monthly meeting.

Luckily, there are ways to gently disrupt disorganized meetings. Either as the meeting convener or as a participant, you have the power to improve the meetings you attend. This talk will teach you how to set the stage for a productive meeting, how to keep a meeting on course and how to politely but firmly handle several common types of meeting derailment. The best part is that the difference is immediately noticeable. Healthy meeting habits are contagious, in the best possible way!
