The Most Misused Tool in Meetings

by on
in Remarkable Leadership with Kevin

There are plenty of things that can go wrong with meetings, and the litany of complaints about them is long. In my 25 years of attending, observing and facilitating meetings, one of the biggest challenges I’ve seen is groups staying on topic. The problem is a natural one – if you put a group of intelligent, interested people in a room, they are going to have thoughts that aren’t completely in line with the current topic, and when they get voiced they can put the group off task or topic.

This is an excellent post, and I really liked the analogy to a TiVo. That’s EXACTLY what the Parking Lot it, and you’re right – most people who do use this tool in their meetings tend to forget about stiff they’ve put there.

We’ve written about this on our own blog –

And a feature of MeetingKing is to remind you of ideas and items that you’ve added to your Parking Lot and left there.
