Meeting MadnessSeptember 25, 2020 12:31 pm
As we start to head back to the office we’re going to see the return of the ‘meeting’. At their best it’s a chance to share knowledge and ideas and move big ideas forward. At their worst they kill productivity and leave you wanting to leap out of the nearest window in a bid for freedom.
If you hate meetings, you’re not alone:
90% of people admit to daydreaming in meetings
60% take notes to appear that they’re listening
73% admit to doing other work during meetings
25% of meetings are spent discussing irrelevant issues
But leaders love a meeting with 79% saying theirs are productive. But are they really? Given time is money and meetings take up a lot of time, (An average one is between 31-60 minutes) it’s worth making sure that time is money well spent. So here are some tips for making your meetings productive:
- Set clear objectives
- Have an agenda
- Don’t invite too many people
- Use videos and presentations to make it visually interesting.
- Follow up afterwards
