Last week, we asked eNews readers if they think their company’s meetings are productive. Half of all respondents answered no, while 36% said yes and 14% weren’t sure.
“We are a mid-sized company and thankfully our meetings are only as needed. It’s scary how meetings seem to paralyze so many big companies.”
“With good leadership, you need very little meetings. Leadership is lacking in today’s business climate!”
“Way too many unproductive meetings.”
“As a self-employed consultant, I don’t have company meetings, per se. However, during my 30+ years working as a scientist for Fortune 500 and smaller companies, I always felt that the vast majority of meetings were a total waste of time.”
