7 rules for setting up meetings

by Dec 15, 2022

I was looking into rules for meetings.

What are good times to meet? How long? How do you set up meetings?

This is what I found:

✅ Do meetings of 1/2 hour or an hour. Most people prefer this.

❌ Don’t schedule meetings before 9:00 AM or after 4 PM. People like to do some start- and end-of-day activities.

✅ Do leave 12 – 1 PM free. Lunchtime!

❌ Don’t do meetings on Friday. This is usually the day for personal activities and wrapping up for the weekend.

✅ Do set the meeting’s purpose. A title is often not enough, give a description of the goal of the meeting.

❌ Don’t be late.

✅ Offer multiple slots to choose from. Stops back-and-for emailing about day and time.
