If you ask people what they think about meetings, some would say they start late or run over, they are inefficient, nothing is ever agreed and sometimes they waste the company’s time. They need is to know how to run a good meeting.
The problem isn’t that we schedule meetings in the first place, it’s how we run them. Most companies tell me their meetings are just not productive.
But they don’t have to be like this.
Meetings can be a good forum for healthy conflict and lively debate, a time to crowdsource the best ideas, build consensus and agreement, and move the company forward with solutions.
