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.
