- Everyone Hates Attending Unproductive Meetings In case you need some convincing check out these statistics from TED.com:
- • 25% of meetings are spent discussing irrelevant issues. • 50% of people find meetings to be unproductive. • 73% of employees do other work in meetings. • 90% of people daydream in meetings. • 100% of employees play Candy Crush, Facebooking with friends, or text their kids during meetings. (That last bullet was a joke, but you get the idea)
- A Million Dollar Problem Executives average 23 hours a week in meetings. 7.8 hours of that time is spent in unnecessary or poorly run meetings.
- That adds up to a waste of over 2 months a year, per executive.
- Do the math. If you’re paying a group of 5 executives an annual average of $100,000, that’s adds up to $83,333 of wasted salary per year. Hopefully you are paying yourself more than that. If you’re making $250,000, wasted meeting time costs you $41,666 per year.
- Project those numbers over ten years, and you can see how your badly run meetings can cost you millions of dollars in salary alone.
- What Is the Root Cause of Bad Meetings? 75% of people have no received no formal training on how to conduct a meeting, so most people have no clue about how to run a well-structured meeting.
- They don’t know how to begin the meeting with a bang so that participants are engaged, how to tap in to the best thinking of the attendees during the meeting, or how to drive towards a conclusion in a timely manner.
