Show up, Control the Ink and Stay to the End.

That's how you take charge of a meeting.

Before the meeting:

Firstly get clear about the Purpose of the meeting and your objectives for the meeting. Write them down.

Get any supporting documents printed out ready for your meeting.

At the meeting:

Arrive early to the meeting, with a clear agenda written down.

Announce your agenda as soon as the meeting starts and provide everyone with a copy.

If you can, offer to be scribe. (another way to control the ink!)

Drive the meeting through your agenda, be nice, but firm.

Check to see you have achieved your objectives.

Stay until the meeting has ended, or until you have achieved your objectives.

Show up, control the ink and stay to the end!
