Hi All,
We are planning to make a committee in our office. And we are adding 2/3 persons from each department, so they can be the voice of their teams, and they can convey the messages/problems what their colleges are having/facing. Recently we have noticed that things are not going accordingly in our office i.e. The quality of the food, coffee/Tea and house keeping works etc. So our management is planning to introduce a committee, we'll be having a meeting once in a week, so we'll collect list of work which is not going accordingly.
Plz give some suggestions and samples of the work.
Kindly do the needful.
Dhananjaya Shetty.

Hi Dhananjaya,

Well it’s not a difficult task but let me tell you one thing that on your paper list the people who have qualifications which suit the committee you are forming. List most qualified to least qualified peoples

After their names, enter their phone number and a place to enter their decision. Call more people than you will need and ask them to think about it and about your planning for the same.

If you are still lacking enough committee members, then call those who agreed to reconsider. Hopefully, this will complete your committee. Never plead, but you can state the benefits of their membership and let them know the work of this committee. For instance, they will have input into this very important issue.

Once your committee is formed, you should set a first meeting date with the agenda of meeting and complete detail of work, so you can complete your work within the required time.

Tips & Warnings

Some committees are strictly volunteer. Hands raised form the committee. As committee head, you still need to know each individuals strengths and weaknesses in relationship to the subject of your committee. This makes it easier to assign work to people who will get the job done. Also, be aware of personality conflicts between any two and keep them in separate functions.

Leading a committee is not easy. You are dealing with diverse personalities and opinions. It is your job to develop a harmonious group. Keep your lead. Sometimes it is necessary to say something like, this is interesting, but it doesn't have much to do with what we are meeting about, so let's get back on topic. You are the captain of the ship and it will either sail or not sail under your direction.

Best of Luck
