Speak and Lead: Good Meetings

How can an ineffective leader become an effective chairperson? Why do some leaders make leading a meeting look so easy? What does someone need to know to lead a good meeting?

Unlike the  ineffective chairperson  who mumbles or shouts, plays favourites, is easily sidetracked and shows a general inability to deal with controversy, the effective chairperson practises the following:

  • Speaks clearly and calmly.
  • Remains objective, focused and courteous despite controversy.
  • Insists on mutual respect among participants.
  • Knows and practises parliamentary procedure.
  • Accommodates spirited debate.
  • Creates fair voting procedures.
