Limit the amount of time spent on meetings within your company.


  1. Schedule a non-meeting day at least once a week.
    This will allow everyone within the organization to focus solely on their tasks.
  2. Use a time timer during your meetings.
    This will ensure that the exact time allocated is spent on each item on the agenda.
  3. Organize stand-up meetings.
    According to research, stand-up meetings lead to better collaboration, less possessiveness of ideas, higher levels of engagement, and more problem-solving creativity.
  4. Hold short meetings, preferably between 5 and 10 minutes.
    This will encourage all participants to focus on the agenda of the meeting.
  5. Attend meetings without gadgets like smartphones.
    Using a phone during a meeting indicates a lack of respect and attention.
