Meetings… Is there a bigger bane to a leader than a meeting that runs on and on and on? I think not.
Meetings have become a productivity nightmare. You wrangle in multiple team members, hold them hostage in a room for half an hour or longer, and then try to figure out a reason for the meeting.
Normally, you have a good idea going into the meeting what you want to accomplish. You may want to:
- Figure out how to increase productivity on the shop floor
- Decide what steps to take to increase cash flow for the business
- Launch a new product that will revolutionize your industry
- Choose a new team leader for a major product
