How many meetings on your calendar do you dread? How many do you actually look forward to?
Everyone jokes about meetings — how awful they can be, how poorly they are run, and how unnecessary many of them are in the first place. Worse still, in the past year, Microsoft has estimated that time spent in meetings has increased by as much as 150 percent.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could make meetings remarkable? Imagine all that time meeting was time well spent, leaving everyone energized, creating clarity, and building momentum as everyone works to solve hard problems together!
In our three part series with Voltage Control — we tackled meeting dread head-on and Douglas walked us through how you can truly make your meetings, magics.
