Just the mere mention of a meeting makes me cringe. Crazy thoughts run through my mind. And probably yours.
Meetings tend to be long-winded, only mildly on-topic, and rarely need you in the meeting the whole time. Yet here you sit.
That’s why it’s time for us to rethink whether or not it’s the right call to hold an in-person meeting.
Meetings Are Good
They really are. They have a purpose.
Finding that purpose is the challenge.
Meetings are great when you need face-time with someone.
Meetings are great when you need to quickly hash out the details of a big project
Meetings are great when you’ve got all the information handy
But meetings often fail to meet these tests. They begin to delve into random topics and people don’t get a resolute answer.
