How to run a good business meeting

When you have your own franchise business. Meetings are almost a daily ritual. Here are some tips on how to run a business meeting:

*Don’t compete with group members. Give their ideas precedence over yours.

* Listen to everyone. Paraphrase, but don’t judge.

* Control the dominant people without alienating them.

* Realize that your interest and alertness are contagious.

* Keep all participants informed about where they are and what’s expected of them. Keep notes on flip charts or a board that everyone can see.

* Check with the person who owns the problem to find out if an idea is worth pursuing or if a proposed business solution is satisfactory.

* Give others a turn at running the business meeting. Those who learn to lead learn how to participate.
