Did you know that people consider 37% of meetings to be useless?

So, how do you run meetings that don’t suck? Well, there’s a lot to it, according to digital specialists Beaker and Flint.

But the good news is that there are loads of tools and tips to help. Like creating a visual agenda instead of a list, and focusing on an outcome rather than talking for talking’s sake. You could set a timer to box discussions, poll how people are feeling half-way through and close by asking what participants got out of it. Shorter, more focused meetings will leave everyone happier and more motivated to come to the next one.
