The average office worker in the UK.
Spends 16 hours per week in meetings.
Some meetings are necessary.
Most meetings aren’t.
Some meetings do need to last as long as they do.
Most meetings don’t.
In some meetings, everyone that’s there needs to be there.
In most meetings, they don’t.
In some meetings, every single person is paying attention to every single thing.
In most meetings, they’re not.
So try this.
Halve all meetings.
Number of people at the meeting.
And with a little thought and planning.
I bet you get the same benefits.
And at least 8 hours back.
Have a meeting about it.
Just one, mind.
Then act in it.
And it might be the best meeting you ever had.
