Things we can consider.

When being called upon to attend a meeting, it can be great to consider the following factors:

  1. What is the broader context to the meeting? Is it a routine meeting, is there key factors or exceptional circumstances? An example can be a change in legislation, triggering a meeting to review the impact on the organisation.
  2. What are the Sponsor intentions? Those that called the meeting and support the meeting have agendas, it can be useful to consider what they might be? For instance, business leaders may be seeking to socialise a strategic direction and looking to understand if it sounds or looks okay to us.
  3. Useful contributions sought from us. We may be known for having formal or informal power, plus a set of skills, experiences, and perspectives. Which combination of these might be called upon for this meeting?
