The value of effective meetings

We spend almost 50% of our time in meetings. Done wrong, that time is a real productivity killer. But when meetings are effective and efficient, that together time is crucial to high-performing teams.

Meetings are your time to tackle complex problems and brainstorm amazing ideas on how to achieve your goals. If you’re clear on your plan, a good meeting is a valuable forum for people to ask questions and share issues. From there, you can resolve problems and get everyone on the same page – and get back to getting work done. That’s why holding effective meetings is so important.
