What’s keeping you from achieving more, being more motivated, completing that task or project?
Each one of us will have their own answer, but in an organisation, the most common answer must be meetings.
Meetings without an agenda and a list of actions to follow up with.
Meetings that are updates.
Meetings that should have been an email or a Slack message.
Meetings to give feedback on a piece of work you have never seen before.
Meetings that are workshops that aim at fixing a problem with participants who have no idea what the problem is, let alone the skill set to fix it.
If you are a manager of people, your first responsibility should be to rid their calendars of meetings.
