Meetings are windows on the soul of business: they reveal the quality of its management. Well-organized, well-conducted meetings bespeak an effective organization. Meetings dominate the way in which we do business today. In fact, approximately 11 million meetings occur in the U.S. each and every day.

Meetings dominate the way in which we do business today. We are obviously concerned about inefficient meetings that waste both your time and your company’s money. If they’re conducted properly, meetings can and will make you (and your organization) function more efficiently. So the next time you’re asked about why you bother holding meetings, think of all the time and money-wasting activities that could be minimized or eliminated with a meeting.

Obviously, e-mail is invaluable when you’re communicating over long distances, or if you need to send information to more than one person, or if you need a request in writing. But there are plenty of other situations in which we use e-mail when a face-to-face meeting would be much more effective.
Have you ever spent 15 minutes writing an e-mail on a topic that would have taken you two minutes to discuss in person? Or sent an e-mail on an urgent issue and stared impatiently at your monitor waiting for a response? In these instances, wouldn’t it be quicker and easier to schedule a meeting to discuss the issue? That way you can clarify any murky points, receive instant feedback, and engage all relevant parties at once. ...
