To Meet or Not to Meet, That’s YOUR Question

grandfather clock by speaker, author, thought leader Jurgen Tietz

Following on from my previous communiques on meetings, MyTime and So Many Meetings, So Little Time, and because time is such an important aspect of our lives.

Time is the most precious resource we have.
We all have this finite resource of 24 hours,
so why waste it in unproductive meetings?

And so, “To meet, or not to meet?” – that’s the question you need to answer if you are the meeting owner. 

Have a look at the 5 worst reasons for a meeting and examine your meetings. Do they fall into the category of “worst meetings”? 

Impromptu meetings, especially when abusing your position, really reflect on your lack of planning and crisis management style. You know how disruptive it is when you are called to a “the boss wants to see you now” meeting.

If you have to involve a group of people, then meet on your feet rather than on your seat. Sitting down with cookies and tea invariably draws out the session, but you can only stand for so long. 

If you want to know how others value your meeting, then organise it for after hours and see how many people don’t pitch or make excuses and how quickly you complete the agenda. 

 Be safe – the SIMPLY SMART way,

Jürgen
