Mamie Kanfer Stewart and I are going to discuss how to stop wasting time and draining energy in unproductive meetings.
As I observe my own productivity challenges, I realize that most of us spend so much time in meetings discussing what needs to get done versus actually doing what needs to get done.
This reminded me of the time my husband came home from work (before remote) one Friday night and shared with me that he calculated the amount of time he was in meetings for that week. Wait for it!
The number of hours in meetings that week was 35! 35 hours, holy smokes! Of course, I asked him, “who does the work and when does it actually get done?” His answer was that he wasn’t sure. Shocking the amount of time, we feel the need to be in meetings for optics or to show we are an important player in the organization or the need to just feel needed.
Studies have shown that unproductive meetings are one of the greatest forms of waste in business today. Not only do they hamper productivity, but they also drain energy and diminish morale. Learn three simple strategies to make all your meetings effective and engaging.
