$37 billion is a lot of money wasted in a year. Poorly run meetings not only waste money but time, too.

We’ve all been there. Rolling our eyes at a meeting that most definitely could have been an email. When meetings are bad, they’re bad.

If you’re tasked with running a meeting, we want you to lead an efficient one. In other words, we want you to lead the kind of meeting that people actually look forward to going to—and not just because you’ve bribed them with free donuts.

Learn how to run an efficient, mindful meeting that boosts productivity and promotes healthy communication by enrolling in Building Efficient Meetings today.


+ Not having a meeting agenda prepared

+ Lacking a clear start or end time

+ Moving from subject to subject with no clear purpose

+ Inviting too many people that all talk over one another

+ Succumbing to distractions and losing focus

Did you know, on average, employees attend 62 meetings a month? Of those meetings, over 50 percent are considered to be a “waste of time” with a total of 32 hours spent in unproductive meetings every month.

Yet, at the end of the day, meetings are necessary. Whether your team is spread among time zones or in a single office, not all communication can happen over emails, Slack messages, and memos. They provide a space for information sharing, teamwork, collaboration, and can provide clarity on projects and goals.
