|RARA A Meeting |
March 10, 2015
I find it interesting that there are still bad meetings in corporate America. I have been fighting to improve meetings for more than 3 decades. I wrote the poem “Meetings – Madness or Sanity?” in 2003 as both a personal observation and a warning to others. I have been teaching and speaking on both time and meeting management since 1983. I was asked by many people to write a book on the meeting management concepts I shared in training, so attendees could share it with others so that more people could use them to improve their meetings. I wrote the book R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard’s Approach to fill that need for more productive meetings. Mine is not the only book in print (or e-book) to help people hold more effective and efficient meetings. So why are companies still experiencing bad meetings? Is it the environment or do the individual people not care if the meetings they attend accomplish little?
