If you're like most people, you don't enjoy attending meetings — not only don't you enjoy them, you probably kind of hate them. In fact, 17 percent of workers say they would literally rather watch paint dry than attend one. Eighteen percent would rather take a trip to the DMV.
Why do so many workers feel negatively about attending meetings, across industries and demographics? Might there be a better way? There are alternatives. Maybe it's time to rethink whether we need meetings in the first place.
