Studies have shown that meetings are the primary place where executive choose the candidate to promote to higher positions. Executives choose the person on the basis of his or her actions in the meetings. The main reason behind this is that the executive think a meeting as an opportunity to observe every employee present their and evaluate his or her leading skills. This is what the executives look for in each of their employees-

1. The planning skills of the employee  

A person who has leadership qualities will always plan ahead and know his goals. Good leadership always requires predetermined goals and effective planning to achieve them. A good leader has the ability to set the course of the efforts and change them according to the change in situations. A good leader is aware of the fact that in order to get the best performance from the team, he must communicate with them regularly and make them aware of the expectations he has from each of them. Hence, the executives observe the planning of their employees. They notice if the employee who called the meeting has prepared an agenda or not and if he has informed everyone about it or not. Also, the effectiveness of the agenda is also very important. It must tell everything about the forthcoming meeting. If an employee fulfills all these requirements then he is considered to be worth a leading post.

2. The efficiency of the employee

A meeting is just a small aspect of the bigger process. This whole process begins when the objective and agenda of the meeting is decided. Once the agenda is fixed, the person who is going to head the meeting informs everyone who is important to the meeting about it. He must communicate them and tell them about their expected contribution in the meeting and also inform the employees who will be given responsibilities after the culmination of the meeting. This assures a smooth running during the meeting and it will turn out to be an efficient, smooth and effective affair for everyone. Hence, in order to prove that you are leadership material, you must make the meetings chaired by you as efficient as you can.

3. Employees power to find logic

A good leader is also a good listener. During the meeting, he listens to the things people have to say, very carefully. A good leader must have the ability to analyze different thoughts and decide about the best possible solution to every problem. He has the ability to know whether a particular idea can contribute to the efforts of the team or not. A good leader must know whether his team is working efficiently or not.

4. The productiveness of the employee

The executive study and analyze the conduct and comments of each of their employees present in the meeting. They notice which of the employees are supporting other team players. They also notice people who are trying to contribute with their ideas as it is very important in order to think creatively. Also, the level of seriousness of people towards the task at hand is also very important. You must remember that if you are not productive then it will be visible in form of fear, misinterpretation of expected performance and ineffective working skill. The person who doesn’t perform well in meetings should take coaching to improve himself.

5. The employee should be in control

Other than listening to what people have to say, a leader requires many other qualities. That is why the executives observe the conduct of their employees during meetings. They want to find out whether the person leading the meeting is following the prescribed to take the meeting towards a conclusive end or not and whether he is working towards getting a good result with the team or not. They also observe the other employees to find out whether they feel good about the conduct of the meeting or not.

The person who proves his mettle in all these fields should be considered to be promoted to a leading post. That is why, while selecting a new candidate for a leading post, the executives first observes his conduct in the meetings.
