It feels like everyone could use just a little more…time. More time to do the work (and not just talk about the work). More time to think. More time to pause, reflect, and improve. More time without meetings. We can’t go on like this day in and day out — can we?
In my latest article, me and my colleague Ali Randel talk about 9 causes of meeting overload and what to do about it:
  1. Meetings never lead to clear decisions and next steps
  2. Our meeting routine is non-existent
  3. It isn’t clear who has the authority to make decisions
  4. The priorities are murky
  5. We have meetings that could have been emails
  6. There’s no protected time in your schedule
  7. You’re holding too many roles
  8. The fear of missing out is too great
  9. We’re still having meetings we no longer need
