I have so many meetings I can't get my work done
Emily Neustadt asked us to
estimate how much money was being wasted on bad meetings, too many meetings, lack of focus, interpersonal conflicts. Then she worked with us to set a focus for the year, and orient to results, decrease the number of meetings and make them more relevant. We could apply all this stuff immediately. She didn't emphasize the conflicts, she just kind of reframed them and showed us all exactly how we could be doing things differently. Get her to come in and talk to you. You'll see. She gets to the main issues fast.
This year is going to be a very good year for us.
