Michael Wilkinson of Leadership Strategies Releases New White Paper: The Cost of Wasted Meetings

Meetings are a necessity in any organization, but they do not have to be a waste of time.

    ATLANTA, GA, June 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Certified Master Facilitator Michael Wilkinson, CEO of Leadership Strategies, has released his latest white paper. The paper, titled "The Cost of Wasted Meetings," discusses the true cost associated with the ineffectual and otherwise bad meetings that organizations host.

According to Wilkinson, bad meetings are the equivalent of your organization burning money. He reasons that a single bad meeting wastes man hours that could otherwise be used productively, which means they also waste the money that pays for those man hours. Unfortunately, he notes, more than 75 percent of employees believe that the majority of the meetings they attend are a waste of time.

Wilkinson argues in his paper that the solution is not to abolish meetings overall, but instead to improve the ones you must have and eliminate those that are not necessary. The movement towards creating better meetings will begin when leadership decides that bad meetings are no longer acceptable, whether in a single department or across an entire enterprise.

"The Cost of Wasted Meetings" proposes three different strategies for business leaders to begin changing bad meetings into productive, useful ones.

"The first encourages interested individuals to take facilitation training courses to learn how to facilitate better meetings," says Kris Casariego, Director of Marketing of Leadership Strategies. "The second encourages individual departments to fuel change, and the third encourages change at the enterprise level. Each of these strategies has its own benefits for improving your organization's meetings."
