According to a study done by Management Today magazine, the average corporate worker spends 16 hours per week in meetings and 4 of these are considered pure WASTE! Add that up and it’s the equivalent of 25 working days a year. Think your work performance might benefit from an extra month’s worth of productive time? Yeah, me too.
Check out my latest webinar in which I give some simple and effective tips for running meetings that have clear objectives, take less time and get better results.
Have you ever sat in a meeting where:
1. You had no idea what the purpose of the meeting was.
2. You had no idea what you were expected to contribute.
3. Several people are checking emails or surfing on their phones while others are speaking?
4. Much was discussed, but nothing decided.
In a survey of 500 workers, Management Today Magazine found workers spent 16 hours a week in meetings and 4 of those hours they considered waste. Over the course of a year, that’s 25, 8 hour days wasted. How many important projects could you complete with an extra 25 productive days?
This nonsense needs to stop and I’ve put together a 30 minute webinar to help you get back some of the time that others are stealing from you in meetings. Register here to join me on June 23 at 12:00 Eastern.
