Proven tips for efficient meetings
“Human bliss consists in acting successfully.”
Do you know that? You can hardly get to work with all those meetings. Often, after a busy day, you feel like you’ve spent more time in inefficient meetings than productive hours in the office. A very unsatisfactory situation. You can change that. Control the organization of conferences, discussions and meetings in the background or proactively in the first place.
Following these ten rules mindfully can improve your situation:
|Be well prepared!||Start on time!||Choose the right people!||Set up rules!||Daily agenda|
|If you invite participants with an agenda, it is clear from the start what it is about. Define the goals of the meeting.||A delay messes up the participants’ entire daily routine.||Only invite relevant people who can effectively contribute and make decisions.||Set up meeting rules, such as turning off your cell phone, not editing emails during the meeting. Does a rule violation have any consequences?||Stick to the agenda. This prevents drifting into other topics.|
|Choose a meeting leader!||Integrate images!||To do lists||Keep track of all results||Control|
|Determine who will lead the meeting if there is no moderator or trainer.||Visualize on a flipchart or on a projector.||Create a to-do list – who does what by when?||Every good meeting ends with a minutes of the results.||Check that all agreed to dos have been completed.|
That's what our seminar guests value about us...
At the last reclassification in May 2020, the Climate Protection Ministry confirmed an “excellent success” with one of the highest compliance rates of all hotels in Austria. This makes the garden hotel one of the best-rated eco-label hotels in Austria and shows how sustainability can be lived and conveyed with passion and a sense of regionality.
“Let’s do it like nature does and get up again and again in the task of making good things blossom.”
As one of the top-rated seminar hotels in Austria, we serve as a role model in an industry with great challenges in this special pandemic time. We are very aware of our responsibility and do everything we can to create a safe and at the same time reasonable framework for our customers and guests with enough freedom and our warm hospitality. We score points with sufficient space in the seminar and break rooms, the extended seminar courtyard and seminar garden and the 4500m² natural orchard.
Everything for your well-being – your team leader from the garden hotel.
