The Five Words That Can Swing A Meeting In Your Favour

Recommended Posts

After applying “machine learning algorithms” to a “very large amount of meeting data” they identified the words most commonly used to gain support for proposals or take the lead in discussions.

These were “yeah, give, start, meeting” and “discuss”.

So if anyone is in a meeting today your challenge is to use the above!

To be honest if the above is the best they can come up with I think they need to have another meeting!

Yeah ok, but you will have to give me some time to start a meeting so we can discuss it.

“yeah, give me a time to start a meeting to discuss this"

clearly, I have won the argument and arranged another meeting.:(

I would prefer, "now, can I have your order please?"

Learning About Meetings

Abstract.

Most people participate in meetings almost every day, multi-

ple times a day. The study of meetings is important, but also challenging,

as it requires an understanding of social signals and complex interper-

sonal dynamics. Our aim this work is to use a data-driven approach to the

science of meetings. We provide tentative evidence that: i) it is possible

to automatically detect when during the meeting a key decision is taking

place, from analyzing only the local dialogue acts, ii) there are common

patterns in the way social dialogue acts are interspersed throughout a

meeting, iii) at the time key decisions are made, the amount of time left

in the meeting can be predicted from the amount of time that has passed,

iv) it is often possible to predict whether a proposal during a meeting

will be accepted or rejected based entirely on the language (the set of

persuasive words) used by the speaker

Did their algorithm capture the sound of a Tazer being used?

"Orbital Lance strike!"

(I actually did say this in a meeting once about a problematic supplier, it was the high point of my time there)

Today I am at most risk of saying

"I will be fine, but they will never talk to you again"

I am really just trying to hang on until the weekend, but you know? I actually saw someone faint with stress last week.
