A question I like to ask during an interview is, “What is your least favorite aspect of your current role?” Often, the answer is “meetings!”
In the worst cases, meetings are considered a waste of time that prevent meaningful work from getting done. At best, they are considered a necessary evil during the work week. However, collaboration and teamwork cannot be developed in isolation or with a lack of communication.
How can you begin to make your meetings an aspect of work that your team looks forward to rather than dreads?
