Want Better Meetings? Get Rid Of Noise, Toys And Spectators

Meetings are both a necessity and a struggle for many companies. Spring boarding off of a recent article which indicated that 85% of managers believed meetings were unproductive, this article by Bain Insights attempts to help boost the use of meetings. Their suggestion? Remove outside distractions like smart phones, create “sacred symbols” to indicate the importance of the meeting or a part of the meeting, and don't leave the door open for “do over” denials. Through these efforts, you can refocus your team's attention on meetings and actually get decisions made rather than simply hoping something good comes out of another disruptive hour away from the desk.
