Speeding Up Meetings


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I read where one of the best ways to shorten meetings is to remove the chairs. We had such a meeting and it works. Everyone came prepared to present and it reduced a lot of unnecessary side talk because everyone was ready to get whatever info was needed and get back to their desks.

    Very clever! My office loves their all day meetings, this could solve the long days, or we might just have sore feet.
