Meetings we love to hate them. Everyone has their own frustration, but in the end it always comes down to the same things: unproductive, inefficient, unnecessary, start or end late, and they keep you from completing your own work in time.

It’s clear most meetings suck, but the good news is you can do something about the way you (and your organization) approach meetings. They can be useful if practiced appropriately.

Scientists showed that, if conducted appropriately, meetings are forums for many good things. Good meetings generate creativity, debate, discussion and new ideas. They can also be vital for sharing information, solving problems and making decisions. All of these should result in clear next steps for moving work forward.
