If our pay cheques provided enough motivation, then bad meeting problems wouldn't exist. But the reality of most meetings is that people often arrive late, unprepared and then they talk too much and the bad meetings continue.

So, as a meeting leader, how can you find other ways to motivate your team to do there best when it comes to building highly productive meetings together. One suggestion is to create an 'inspiration registry'.

And if you want to learn how to do this, then listen to episode #127 on the Meeting Leadership Podcast.

In this episode you'll learn how to make a list of accomplishments that happened during your meetings. You could also add personal achievements of the people on your team. And you might even want to write down the names of famous people and why they inspire you.

Then, when a meeting gets off track, instead of complaining about it, you could pull out a specific quote from your inspiration registry.  This would remind people on your team about why they are actually in the meeting.
