How can a meeting run effectively? Often meetings are seen as an excuse for employees not to do any work, where arguments occur, opinions are not listened to and nothing is agreed upon. This can minimise productivity for an organisation as it is their chance to co-ordinate and brainstorm solutions and proposals together. 

Good discussion and negotiation techniques do not simply involve getting your point across, but also demonstrating an ability to listen to other people's points.Are you taking on board others opinions? What do you think would happen if people feel they are not feeling listened to in meetings.
