About the Meeting Template

Everyone has been in a meeting that didn’t go as planned. Maybe it ran off course, or you ran out of time to accomplish everything you set out to do or maybe it just felt like a waste of time.

To avoid that, it’s important to prepare to run a team meeting ahead of time. With this simple but effective meeting template, you can prepare to run a team meeting that ticks all the boxes. Set your teammates up for success, give everyone the time and space to contribute, and keep your projects on track.

How to use the meeting template

Miro's meeting template can be used any time you’re running a remote, hybrid, or in-person meeting. Start by adding the meeting template to your Miro board, then take the following steps to make it your own:

1. Determine the purpose of the meeting

One of the most common complaints about team meetings is that they feel like a waste of time. When people come to a meeting with the expectation that they won’t get anything out of it, they’re less likely to listen and contribute and they might even start skipping meetings.

Before you start a meeting, ask your teammates what they would most like to see, do, or discuss. Is there something on which they would like the team’s input? Is there a challenge they’d like to talk about.

2. Build the meeting agenda

Prior to the meeting, take the time to create an agenda so everyone knows what the meeting is about before they step foot in the room (or virtual room). Be transparent about why you did and did not include certain items on the agenda.

3. Share the agenda items

Before the meeting, make sure everyone gets a copy of the agenda so they can prepare. Many people find it useful to list agenda items as questions. For example, instead of “editorial calendar,” you can try “should we update the editorial calendar?” A phrase like “editorial calendar” might leave participants wondering what exactly they’re going to talk about, which makes it more challenging for them to prepare. But using concrete language gives them something to prepare for. During the meeting, display the agenda on the board so everyone can refer to it as they discuss.

4. Allocate time for each topic

This ensures you will address every topic on the agenda without running out of time, and it allows your teammates to construct their questions and comments to fit the time they have been given. You can even start a timer when everyone begins discussing a given agenda time and agree to move onto the next item after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

5. Send meeting notes

After the meeting, make sure you send out a recap of what you discussed, in addition to the board itself. That way, everyone can refer back to their notes and hit the ground running.
