Make The Most of Your Meetings

By Judith Lindenberger

Typical managers spend nearly 40% of their work hours in meetings, not to mention the time spent preparing (and recuperating).A survey of business leaders showed:
• 33% of time spent in meetings is unproductive
• 75% of the respondents said it is “almost essential” to have an agenda, yet they use them only 50% of the time
• Only 64% of meetings achieve their intended outcome

A disciplined approach to making the most of meeting time will help to maximize team effectiveness.
