Attending Too Many Meetings? - Many people in today’s corporations feel that they are attending too many meetings. In addition, people are complaining the attending them is pointless. It comes at a time when employees often check Facebook, text friends, or sleep through long and pointless Powerpoints.
In return companies find themselves spending pointless dollars on the extra hours. There are many reoccurring problems with the companies having countless meetings. One main problem and probably the most obvious would be poor mechanics.
One good way to help improve the mechanics of a meeting is to have the employees review the information and have them grade the effectiveness of the material presented.
Another main problem often faced is that the leader doesn’t exercise his or her role as the leader. To solve this problem make sure the leader of the meeting knows what their expectations are. Many leaders aren’t trained or prepared for the task. Giving them specific and concrete directions can make the meeting go more smoothly.
Many other common problems include the leader trying to do to much. Another notion is that meetings have bad PR and focus on information sharing more than decision making. Fixing these problems can lead to less more effective meetings.
