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. As you lead in 2019, consider how you can minimize and maximize the meetings you organize.

“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
