Episode Show Notes

Meetings are an essential part of everyone’s work experience. But unfortunately, many of us have come to view them as a necessary evil. They’re something we begrudgingly schedule on our calendars and then dread attending because they often seem unfocused, unnecessary and unhelpful. For leaders looking to boost organizational culture and performance, focusing on improving the way we do meetings can be a game-changer.

Join us as Todd Mosetter and Daniel Harkavy sit down to discuss why our meetings can suck, and what leaders can do to make them great.
