Meeting Etiquette


HIRRA’s Guide to Meeting Etiquette

  • Everyone welcome; leave old grudges at the door.
  • Assume that everyone has a positive motivation and a valuable perspective.
  • Listen and speak respectfully, even in disagreement.
  • Allow for all to be heard (who want to be), with no one dominating.
  • Focus on issues rather than individuals or personalities.
  • Speak from personal experience rather than hearsay.
  • State opinions directly rather than contradicting others.
