Team meetings no one will dread
Tips for making meetings worth the time
We’ve all heard the griping about meetings. They’re unproductive. They take over our calendars. They’re tedious, and they take us away from the things we should be working on.
Yet, one survey found that professionals spend 21% of their working time in meetings. What’s even worse? Those same respondents think that at least a quarter of that meeting time is totally wasted. It’s no wonder that most of us groan when we see yet another one dropped on our already-packed calendars.
Here’s the thing: team meetings are a necessary part of the working world. When you plan and manage them right, you can bolster your team to generate ideas, solve problems, and achieve goals.
So that all begs the question: how do you run an effective meeting so that magic can actually happen? How can you ensure that this get-together is a productive use of your team’s time - and not yet another cringe-worthy chunk out of their workday?
This guide shares what you need to know to make the absolute most of your team meetings (and, when in doubt, bringing donuts never hurts).
