A CEO of an organization asked his staff of 30 to post on a Wiki page what they liked or disliked about staff meetings over the years. A couple of the common answers were “no staff meetings for staff meetings sake” and “a solid start and stop time.”
When it comes to those necessary meetings at work, the three most common complaints seem to be that there are either too many of them, not enough of them, or they are a complete waste of time.
I suggest that too many meetings can derail production. Salary.com states that the number one productivity killer in organizations is unnecessary meetings. On the other hand, not enough meetings can derail communication. It has be proven time and time again that with a lack of consistent meetings, conflict among management and co-workers increase.

Our whole group loved the session and talked about it for the next few days. In fact we still have fun with the color thing.
We’ve been fortunate to have Bill Gallagher at our last two conferences. Bill brings a professional and non-threatening approach to his team-building workshops.
Our staff gave the workshop high marks because what we learned could be applied to both the personal and professional aspects of our lives. The material was though provoking without being threatening.
