Why we created the Meeting Notebook collection
Here at Leaders in Heels we know what it’s like to be busy. We believe a key ingredient to getting things done is the ability to collaborate and exchange ideas.
But we’ve also learnt that unproductive meetings cost companies billions of dollars every year. That’s why we created the Meeting Notebook collection, to help our leaders run more effective meetings.
The layout of this notebook draws upon research into how the world’s most successful leaders run their meetings, and we’ve used this knowledge to create the most simple, clear and powerful notebook we could!

What we learned about how to run effective meetings
Some helpful tips and tricks from the world’s leading CEOs to keep your meetings productive and engaging.
Keep meetings as small as possible
The late Apple CEO Steve Jobs believed too many minds in one room get in the way of simplicity, and make conversation difficult. It is best to only invite essential people and record them in the Meeting Notebook attendees section.
Set the agenda in advance and strictly stick to it
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg is known to bring a list of discussion points and cross them off one by one. Our notebook has a dedicated space for agenda setting.
Start your meeting by setting intentions together
Oprah Winfrey uses 3 questions to steer her meetings to the point “What is our intention for this meeting? What’s important? What matters?” The Meeting Notebook layout helps plan for clear and focused discussion.
Assign responsibilities and due dates
All tasks for completion should be agreed upon during the meeting so no-one is unclear on what is expected next. Our Follow-up/To-Do section helps make this happen.
Respect the clock
When time is wasted, employee engagement and productivity suffers so meetings should end as soon as the agenda has been covered. Studies show that starting on time and sticking to the agenda can reduce meeting times up to 80 percent!
