CM110: “I Freaking HATE Meetings!”
“I freaking HATE meetings!” Actually, everybody does.
Little or nothing gets done. The same blow-hard dominates the meeting every week. We talk for hours and make no decisions. Then we meet again to cover exactly the same ground again. No wonder only 1 out of every 3 meetings is considered a success of any kind. And the amount of time, money, and effort expended on bad meetings is ree-diculous.
It’s another one of those skills that does not get taught to leaders, and people learn how by watching other people who don’t do them how. Big surprise that the RULE, not the exception, is that most meetings are terribly done and people freaking HATE them!
