Chapter 11. Let’s Make Steel > Getting the Group Started

Getting the Group Started

Perhaps you have been selected as the leader and need to get your new group together, or perhaps you have been asked to help. You need to get the participants selected and invited, arrange for a meeting place, and prepare people for the first meeting by providing any required information. Be sensitive to meeting locations. The time and location of your meeting can help or hurt the chance of a successful meeting. Even the furniture layout can affect your meeting. Pick a neutral location where you will not be interrupted. Arrange for seating either in a circle or a U shape. It is usually better to meet in the morning than afternoon. Before the meeting, arrange for someone to take notes for you so you will be free to concentrate on the meeting.

HINT: You only get one chance to make a first impression. Make sure that the impression you create is one of caring and attention to detail.
