I’ve had two critical discussions with folks in the last week about the value of meetings, and how we can get more out of them (or have fewer of them). Then I read Scott Berkun’s great piece from last week, “The Cult of Busy” (based on the essay “Why I Stopped Working with Busy People“. All together, it’s made for a week contemplating leaders (and followers) can shape their environment and shape their organization’s results by better managing their time and resources. So in continuing my regular Wednesday leadership question, I ask:
How do you make the most of your meetings? How do you respect (and make the most of) the time of the people you work with?
