Have you ever attended a meeting, completely disagreed with the decision, but said nothing? We’ve all been there. Unfortunately that silence can be viewed as acceptance by some participants and end up costing you in the end.
Establishing meeting guidelines, such as “Silence is Acceptance,” can help set the tone for meetings, create alignment with participation, and create consistency and buy-in from the group. We have attached our recommended meeting effectiveness guidelines that you can include with the agenda for your next meeting or post in the meeting area to create a mutual accountability in following them.
