Rule 4: Avoid drift.
Deep Dive with Matt Abrahams

Stay on topic and finish on time. These are cardinal rules for effective meetings.

Easier said than done! As Elise met with each of the presenters for this series, those meetings went all over the place and most ran long. Except one.

Matt Abrahams kept our meeting on track without making it weird or unpleasant in any way. Matt, one of the original authors of the 10 Rules paper, is a master of public speaking, group engagement, and keeping conversations both relaxed and focused.

In this session, Matt will share his strategies for confidently keeping groups out of the weeds.

Then, we'll work together to practice these techniques and share strategies that work well in our unique team environments.
