Leading Productive Meetings

1 day

About the Solution

Are meetings considered as office productivity killer? Why do meetings have a bad reputation? Do the attendees struggle to stay awake during the meetings?

Meetings should be like salt – a spice sprinkled carefully to enhance a dish, not poured recklessly over every forkful. Too much salt destroys a dish. Too many meetings destroy morale and motivation.Jason Fried
