The pandemic has subsided quite a lot, and we’re slowly getting back to our offices. A lot has changed, including the way we hold our corporate meetings. We’ve learned that we shall focus more on the objective rather than how we held the meeting. Sunrecruit Indonesia prepared this article to discuss three types of meetings based on their objectives and how we can do each one well. Let’s check them!

Relational meetings focus more on strengthening the connections between colleagues. This type of meeting includes, but is not limited to, offsite gatherings, team lunches, and team-building outings. Pay attention to these three details:
Of all three types of meetings, this is the meeting to be held if Suners want to address topics with no clear outcome or process, relying on the team’s sensitivity and agility.

While the three types are quite common, there are times when the meeting is neither transactional, relational, or adaptive. There are also times when the meeting is any combination of the three. This should not be a problem, as what makes an effective gathering is focusing on the objectives and possible outcomes of the meeting.
The three types of meetings we discussed earlier are not the golden standard. If anything, they should be treated more as a guideline. That way, Suners can be more flexible in the treatment of the meetings.
