“Are you lonely? Tired of working on your own? Do you hate making decisions? Then hold a meeting! You can see people, draw fancy charts, feel important, impress your colleagues and drink Starbucks coffee and eat donuts. All on company time! Meetings. the practical alternative to work.”
– Office Cartoon Seen in a Client’s Break Room
Have you ever left a meeting only to ask yourself, “What did we accomplish?” You are not alone! Research indicates that less than 50% of all meetings are worth the time and effort (Robert B. Nelson and Peter Economy, Better Business Meetings, Burr Ridge, IL: Irwin Inc, 1995). More often than not, they leave their participants with more to be desired.
But day after day, week after week, meetings all over the globe take place without achieving desired results. This leads to frustration with participants unwilling to make positive contributions and give insight at future meetings because they may feel that meetings are not a good use of their time.
Research shows that when a meeting agenda is properly developed and a facilitator is used, the success rate of a meeting significantly goes up.
