Interesting Business2Community article, here, about how to handle time wasting people at work. There are just a few of key points:
· Know how to delegate
· Set times for handling questions and issues
· Rethink your meetings
The last one applies to all of us. How many meetings happen out of habit week after week or are much longer than they need to be? Do many of your meetings share information that could have just as easily been sent as an email? Do they have way more attendees than are really needed?
As we look ahead to 2018 maybe we should all reevaluate our meetings. Make sure the attendees are appropriate and determine if they all need to be there the whole time. See if there are more efficient ways to share information. Try going without – what happens if you skip a few! Give us your ideas for minimizing the time devoted to meetings, would love to hear your tips.
