Secrets to Leading Productive Meetings: Get Better Results in Less Time
If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be ‘meetings.’”— Dave Barry
Workers say that 70% of the time they spend in meetings is wasted.
Gathering staff in one place for a focused discussion is one of the most effective ways to keep the team motivated and working toward a common goal. But people often allow their meetings to become mere formalities… wastes of time… or even turf wars among staff.
People often call meetings for the wrong reason, or use the wrong structure and process. Don’t let a meeting that you or your boss run be labeled as a waste of time. You can increase the productivity of your meetings — while reducing the time they take!
