What Do You Hate Most About Office Meetings?
Every now and then, we here at the stations have to have a company wide conference call. Most of the time they're just a "State of the Union" thing. I find if I sit in these things for too long.... it can get a little dry. I might not be alone, though. A management training site called GiveMore.com conducted a survey on why work meetings are so frustrating. Here are the things we hate the most:
#1.) Allowing people to ramble and repeat the same comments and thoughts.
#2.) Meetings that don't start on time, stay on track, or finish on time.
#3.) Not getting any specific things to work on after the meeting.
#4.) Meetings that have no clear purpose or objective.
#5.) Meetings that aren't inspiring or motivating.
