MEETINGS -- HORRIBLE OR HELPFUL

Meetings are the food and drink of any organization.  In business, research tells us that supervisors and managers spend 50% of their time in meetings in a workweek.  Of that 50% one-half is wasted time (based on interviews from attendees).  It is likely that this is true for nonprofit organizations, as well.video camera

I set out to write an article on meetings - - how to make them helpful.  In my search for an innovative way to approach this topic I stumbled on a collection of funny horrible meetings short videos (Thanks to YouTube!)  The first three videos take a humorous look at horrible meetings.  One made me laugh aloud.  Take a break and have a laugh. 

The last video comes from England and is a clever look at how to hold helpful meetings.  It might be worth sharing internally and certainly if you are training volunteer committee chairs.  Yes, they should be trained.
