Meetings often leave the participants with a feeling of “been there, done that”. You may have figured out solutions for certain projects in progress, but the overall impression is that you have made a tiny step since last week’s meeting. If by the end of the allotted time few new lines of work are established, your meeting is not productive.
What should you do? Leave 15 minutes at the end of the meeting to give your co-workers a chance to talk about new projects.
