Do you know that many of us spend more time in meetings than with our family?
Meetings, in general, are essential for enabling collaboration, creativity, and innovation. They inform our professional relationships and they (often!) ensure proper information exchange. They provide real benefits in theory. But, this isn’t the reality of our meetings today.
65% of managers said meetings keep them from completing their own work. 71% of managers said meetings are unproductive and inefficient. 64% said meetings come at the expense of deep thinking. And 62% said meetings miss opportunities to bring the team closer together.
What does this data mean? We don’t run efficient meetings. Period.
But don’t worry! This tool can become quite handy.
This guide will help you:
- Better plan your meeting before and during the session with proven frameworks
- Set up a psychologically safe environment for open contribution
- Use a better language to be a more effective communicator
