The Challenge: Our Meetings Suck!
Recent research says that executives average 23 hours per week in meetings and 49% of participants considered unfocused meetings & projects as the biggest workplace time waster and the primary reason for unproductive work days. Not only do meetings take up a lot of time and damage morale, they are also incredibly expensive. They might be an annual line item expense of $150,000 for a small startup or up to $75 million for an average Fortune 500 company. Meetings are also where we communicate to each other about the culture of our organization and signal who we are. So what is it saying when your company is spending tons of money and time on something most people find unproductive and miserable?
The Solution: Making Meetings Matter Training
In this session you’ll learn tactics to reduce meeting attendance and make the meetings you are going to more efficient and (dare we say) more fun. From pre-meeting planning, to structured meeting styles, to post-meeting follow up, participants will do hands-on training that will improve any meeting they are running. Stop steamrollers before they start, draw out the quiet experts in the room, be strategic with your slide deck and keep your agenda on track. By energizing and activating meetings, hopefully we can get out of meetings a little faster and a little happier.
