How Successful are Your Meetings?

Meetings.  Who likes them?  Who hates them? Meetings, just for the sake of having meetings are useless, and “good” meetings that accomplish what they are supposed to are better, but many of us complain about having “too many meetings!”  (By the way, how many are too many?)

If your meetings are becoming “snooze fests” you might want to check out these tips.

They’re not so hard.  My favorites are “Call people by their names” and “Respect their dignity.”  What’s yours?
