[FLR] Never Bring Smartphones Into Meetings | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday, 

I was listening to an interview about meetings at Google. A majority of meetings in their company are a maximum of 30 minutes; any longer and people will start leaving. I also heard of another company where the CEO holds meetings standing up to encourage focus and time efficiency. In 2014 as you lead, consider how you can minimize and maximize the meetings you organize.

TEDNilofer Merchant: Got a Meeting? Take a Walk 

  

So instead of using a standing desk, doing sitting meetings over coffee, or meeting in some fluorescent-lit conference room, I do one-on-one meetings as walks. It resolves the tradeoff between ‘taking care of health’ and ‘getting stuff done.’” Nilofer Merchant

Leading, along the road with you!
