Effective Meetings - the use of facilitating tools for better results

The word “meeting” is often perceived as a synonym for “lose of time” or a useless discussion without results. The reasons are different:  Bad or no preparation, undisciplined, unfamiliarity, insufficient facilitating skills or common under evaluation of this “banal” activity. Even so a trivial thing like a meeting has its patterns. In order to be effective the facilitator of the meeting should follow specific rules and should be acquainted with different methods, which would help use the time period in the best way.It is very interesting that often even in companies where costs are controlled continuously, nobody is concerned that “x” number of people spend a useless hour and at the end of this hour they are fed-up. It would be funny if we didn’t spend so much time in meetings, or if our time wasn’t so valuable.
