How to save the world (or at least yourself) from bad meetings

Enjoyed this TED Talk:
How to save the world (or at least yourself) from bad meetings by David Grady

Meetings are important, collaboration is key to the success of any enterprise, well-run meeting can yield really positive, actionable results. But global epidemic is MAS Mindless Accept Syndrome – accepting bad meeting invitations – invites without agenda or information about why you were invited to the meeting.

David himself acted to show how a bad meeting would be in a funny way.

No MAS

  • The next time you get a meeting invitation that doesn’t have a lot of information in it at all, click the tentative button! (That’s why its there)
  • Get in touch with the person who asked you to the meeting.
  • Make more thoughtful decisions about accepting it.

People might start to change their behavior because you changed yours.
