How to Respond When You’re Put on the Spot in a Meeting

Paul Axtell | being put on the spot during a meeting can be an unwelcome surprise | but if you’re prepared to speak up and say something useful, you can turn it into an opportunity to show your expertise | before your next meeting, look through the agenda and write some notes about questions you have and any points you might raise | if you’re called on in the meeting, speak slowly and confidently, and introduce your comments with some context so that colleagues know where you are headed | of course, if someone asks you a question that catches you off guard, don’t be afraid to say you don’t know the answer | practice some simple responses for these moments: “I don’t have that information, but I will get it to you by 1 PM.” And always end by asking, “Did I answer your question?” | Paul Axtell
