BIG's Blog: Time is money.

The email states, “Don’t forget the weekly 10 a.m. meeting in the conference room.” 

We all have seen this message or similar messages. How many of you dread these meetings? Meetings are important, but without focus, can waste valuable time. I bet everyone remembers a meeting where staff seemed unprepared and blamed someone else for their problems. The meeting appeared to be no one person's priority. This is unproductive and expends time.

So, how can managers keep staff and meetings on track? How about shaking things up? Instead of the “same time same place” approach, set meetings on different days and times. Hold a meeting one half of an hour before the office closes. I bet everyone comes prepared and stays on track with that agenda.

My next blog will address the purpose and value of an agenda.


This is BIG’s Blog and yes, by all means forward our blog to your friends and colleagues.
