Meetings are seriously the worst. There’s nothing worse than being forced to spend your time on a call or in a room covering the same content you did last week. I struggle to understand why organisations, managers and teams schedule meeting after meeting when none of us really want or need to be there.
The way I see it, a meeting should be a last resort. They should only be held in serious situations or when it will be the most effective way of communicating and collaborating.
Not all meetings are bad of course. In fact, I actually have a pretty fantastic “meeting experience” at work compared to most people I know.
