Steven Rogelberg: Making meetings count

Be honest with yourself, how would you rate your meetings?

More importantly how would those attending rate them?

Too often executives and professionals have schedules full of them. They even see meetings as a sign of their status, their importance. Yet they still hate the thought of them.

My guest in this episode, Steven Rogelberg, is a world-renowned authority and academic on the topic. He's pioneered some fascinating research, and he's found great ways to distil it into practice.

He shares practical advice you will immediately be able to use in your next meeting to get the most out of them. From framing agendas with questions to making sure the right people are there. My personal belief is that mastery of meetings is available to everyone if you learn, do the hard work, practice, seek out feedback, and try and try again.

“Leaders have to ultimately recognise that they are a steward of others' time.” – Steven Rogelberg
