According to Inc. Magazine:
- Unproductive meetings cost companies in the US $37 Billion each year
- It is estimated that there are 25 million meetings per day in the US
- Middle managers spend 35% of their time in meetings and upper management spends 50%
- 15% of an organizations time is spent in meetings each year and that number increases each year
- Executives consider more that 67% of meetings to be unproductive
If you consider that the average salary is about $46,000, that translates to roughly $7k per employee being spent in meetings and roughly $5k of that wasted (other figures estimate this number to be as high as $10k-15k).
This means that we are losing somewhere between $50-$150k for every 10 employees in our company. We recently trained a company with less than 30 employees and they estimated they were losing over $250k per year in unproductive meetings. After our training not only were they able to recapture that loss but employees reported higher engagement.
Just a few of the questions we answer:
- How do I get someone to attend the meetings I schedule?
- How do I keep a meeting from going off track?
- What do I do about the person who is always taking over the meeting?
- What do I do about those who are multitasking or who are not engaged?
What the training provides:
- Pre-training planning and preparation with sponsor and key stakeholders
- 2-hour training session
- Templates and forms
- Post-training reflection with sponsor and key stakeholders
