“That was an awful meeting.  What a waste of my time!”  

How often have you had this same thought? Why do we tolerate bad meetings? Consider the last meeting you attended that was run by someone else.  How many of these pitfalls were evident?

  • Did not start on time.
  • Missing key people.
  • Lacked a clear purpose.
  • No agenda.
  • Few people engaged.
  • Discussion wandered, repeatedly.
  • Key issues were not addressed.
  • No decisions made.
  • No follow-up actions.
  • The meeting was not worth the time.

Have we lowered the bar so far that bad meetings have become the norm?  Enough is enough.  It is time to ignite a meetings revolution.
