Beth Kanter's curator insight, August 24, 2015 1:54 PM

If your job relies on interpersonal communication, making judgment calls, reading other people’s faces, or managing your own emotional reactions — pretty much all things that the modern office requires — I have more bad news. Researchers have found that overwork (and its accompanying stress and exhaustion) can make all of these things more difficult.

Meetings waste $37B annually. Is relief in sight?

Meetings waste $37B annually. Is relief in sight? | Happy, Healthy Nonprofit | Scoop.it
A change of scenery can help, too, keeping workers interested during meetings that otherwise occur in the same drab conference room every week or every day. Clayton recently published a study in Harvard Business Review showing that trendy "walk and talk" meetings can be an effective management tool. (One immediate benefit: Walks have a natural ending point.)

Clayton's study found that walk-and-talk participants were 8.5 percent more likely to report high levels of engagement. His research suggests that walking increases creativity, too.
Walking meetings have serious limitations, of course—they become unruly if more than three people attend. So standing meetings are becoming increasingly popular, mainly because the threat of physical exhaustion helps limit the soliloquies.
