If you could make your regular meetings for your counseling office, student club, or parent organization more enjoyable, and do so without reducing the quality of the decisions reached, would you be interested? If so, shorten the meetings. New research shows that even shortening a 1-hour meeting to just 50 minutes can make a difference without detriment.
Do that with every meeting you schedule, and you could regain the equivalent of at least one full day’s work. Multiply that by the number of people who regularly attend your meeting and you’ve really got more time on your collective hands.
