Is there anything worse in corporate life than a day full of meetings? I can’t think of many.
Back in the early days of business, meetings had to occur in face-to-face settings. People would travel the country to attend such meetings.
Now, in the internet age, we do more electronically than we do face-to-face. In some respects, that’s a good thing. It definitely creates efficiency. In other respects, we’ve lost the personal touch that business used to be built on.
While meetings still happen (and some days even one is too many if it’s not facilitated correctly), many of them are now held as conference calls.
