Meetings can be unbearable. We average 5.6 hours each week in meetings and 69 per cent of us feel they aren’t productive.(Studies show the only people who enjoy them are people who don’t actually like getting work done.)

- Want to accomplish just as much in significantly less time? Hold your meetings standing up.
- To be more influential sit in the middle and repeat your ideas.
