Your Team Members Aren’t Participating in Meetings. Here’s What to Do.

Sue, a former client of mine, was starting a new VP role at a fintech organization. She found out quickly that the team she inherited had a lower level of participation, collaboration, questioning, and general engagement than the one she had left behind. This was particularly evident in team meetings.

Sue’s challenges aren’t surprising given the widespread issues with meeting cultureResearch has shown that 9 out of 10 people daydream in meetings, 50% find meetings to be unproductive, 25% of meetings are spent discussing irrelevant issues, and 75% of leaders have not received formal training on how to conduct a meeting.
