Are you a Hamster on a Wheel?

Everyone knows we have a problem with meetings.

But like the proverbial ‘elephant in the room’, no one is doing anything about it, and worse, they’re pretending it’s not even there in the first place.

Here’s a few stats for you:

  • In the US, $37 billion per year is spent on unproductive meetings
  • Executives consider more than 67% of meetings to be failures
  • 45% of managers & executives feel overwhelmed by the number of meetings they have to attend, and,
  • Over 70% of people bring other work to meetings!

What if we actually took a look at that elephant, actually put ‘wasted time on unproductive meetings’ as a line item on a financial report?

How much of that $37 billion dollars of wasted money is your company contributing to?

That elephant is trashing your business, and it’s not about simple platitudes or ‘let’s be more efficient’ pep talks. It requires systematic, groundbreaking change in behaviour and culture. It needs a revolution. Interested in corralling that elephant? Here’s the first step.
