Study after study show us that we waste a lot of time in meetings. One of the biggest contributors to that waste is people being late.
A great way to encourage your team to be on time is to model the behavior you desire.
Tip of the day: Show up at least 5 minutes early to your meetings.
Need something to do if you are the only one in the room?
- if it's your meeting, practice your opening
- if you are an attendee, use that time to consider the impression you want to give and the ideas or questions you have about the topic at hand.
- answer some emails, after all you have your phone with you - right?
If nothing else you will get first pick at the pastries!
