LIKE it or not, much of our time, and energy, is spent in company meetings. We can make of these what we will.
Treat them as a waste of time and that is what they will become. Use them to pass the time, and that is what they will do. However, utilise them to better understand your peers and organisation, and to build rapport, and the time will not be wasted. It will be an investment – with some fun thrown in as well.
