Your meeting style is Traditionalist 

You believe a meeting should have a clear purpose and agenda, and everyone should know what is expected of them before the meeting even starts. You're not afraid to keep people on track during the meeting, and you make sure to follow up afterward so that everyone is on the same page.

Tips for Meeting Planners with a Traditional Style

1. Establish a clear purpose and agenda with defined expectations prior to the meeting and stick to it during the meeting.

2. Stay organized and on track by using an agenda, timeline, and/or task list to guide the conversation.

3. Take notes of all tasks and decisions made, who is responsible for them, and when they must be completed.

4. Manage expectations by providing frequent updates on progress and any changes or challenges encountered during the process.

5. Make sure you have time for everyone to express their opinion and give feedback, but be mindful of the time constraints.

6. Remain flexible, willing to adjust plans as needed, and solicit input from all stakeholders.

7. Encourage team collaboration and open communication in order to reach a consensus on decisions made during the meeting.

8. Close the meeting with a summary of what was discussed, any action items that are expected to be accomplished, and any other pertinent information.

Just remember that, while there are many different styles of meeting planners, the ultimate goal should be to create an environment that allows everyone to contribute their ideas and opinions while still making progress towards a common goal. With the right planning and preparation, you can ensure that your meeting is productive and successful.
