$37 Billion Is Lost Every Year On These 9 Meeting Mistakes

A full 11 million meetings happen in America every day. Yet a third of them are productive. Here's a few reasons why.
Richard Meyer's insight:

Studies from the University of Utah show that people have a terrible time of distinguishing experts on a given topic from the loudest person in the room.

As associate professor Bryan L. Bonner tells the Wall Street Journal, we rely on "messy proxies for expertise," like extroversion, gender, or race instead of actually listening to the content of what they're saying. Just because they're loud doesn't mean they're right.

Richard Meyer's insight:
Employees Feel Like a "Cog in the Machine"

Brigadier General Stanley McChrystal is fond of saying that leadership starts with a shared purpose—when talented masons, carpenters, and glassworkers can all see the vision past their individual craft and know that they're part of the team “building the cathedral.”

Detachment from the goals at large leads to detached interest. Employees feel left behind or that they aren't heading in the same direction as the organization. This is where destructive self-interest begins to interference

Infographic: 67 percent of meetings are failures | Articles | Main

This infographic says it's because meetings are poorly planned, attendees multitask and remote attendees miss vital information. Do you agree?
Richard Meyer's insight:

Why are meetings so unproductive? The graphic lists three reasons:


1. People multitask. More than 90 percent (92 percent) of people admit to multitasking in meetings.

2. Remote attendees aren't engaged. Eighty percent of the messages we receive from others come from body language, which you miss when you phone into a meeting.

3. Those who schedule meetings don't plan well. Meeting planners should send necessary materials to participants in advance, and ensure meetings begin and end on time.
