Do you schedule or lead an ongoing meeting? Do you have any idea if it adds value? Do participants look forward to your meetings? Or, do they secretly (or openly) hope for some unforeseen circumstance to occur each week that would cause it to be cancelled?
Since I am currently ensnared in a mind-numbing, time-wasting recurring meeting, I'm keen to share these hints.
Your meeting might be a drag if...
If you're still reading, there is hope for you and your meeting. You simply need to ask invitees how the meeting can be modified to ensure it adds value. If it's a staff meeting, ask your team members to submit agenda topics they feel will be of value to most. Or, consider meeting in person only once a month and conducting perfunctory status update tasks via email. You also could consider rotating the agenda and meeting facilitation duties to bring in fresh perspectives and approaches.
Or, you could continue to make your colleagues suffer. Be advised, though, that the old saying "what goes around comes around" applies to everyone, including you.
