Managing Productive Meetings

“A leader’s first priority is to create an environment where others can do these things and that cannot happen if they are not having effective meetings.”

The costs of ineffective meetings are huge. On average, 50% of the meetings in the organisations, attended by most senior people, are half as effective as they could or should be. A well-organized meeting also has a tremendous influence on the success of a team. In addition to the information sharing purpose, a team meeting also strengthens interpersonal bonds, improves communication and teamwork, increases team morale and satisfaction, and boosts productivity.
