Have you ever been stuck in a meeting that was so exceptionally boring, you wanted to melt into your chair and become a plastic replica of yourself, crawl under the table and make like a mat, or insert ball point pens into your eyes?

I know I have. And unfortunately, many of the meetings we attend are just a big fat waste of time.

Knowing how to run an effective meeting is one of the biggest challenges for leaders. It’s also an absolute necessity. As an executive coach, how to facilitate a meeting to make it meaningful is a common (and worthy) topic.

Today’s vlog is all about how to run effective meetings, with 6 easy, practical tips to help you develop your meetings muscle and make your meetings matter.
