Meetings have a problem. They are designed for a very specific type of person – one who is happy to hold the floor and interrupt others, one who thrives on spontaneous ideas. Meetings discourage contemplation and reflection, and shut out the varied perspectives that can help you reach better decisions.

Did you know, in the average meeting:

  • 91% of people daydream
  • 73% do other work
  • 45% feel overwhelmed
  • 39% fall asleep!

In this guide, we help you fix your meetings. We’ll take a look at the value of meetings, help you identify when a meeting is the right medium to use, and provide a few tips on how to get the most out of your meetings, as well as suggesting some other options for communicating and collaborating in an inclusive way.
