Will face to face meetings ever go extinct?
No – because they prepare business owners to make critical decisions.
This clip does an excellent job highlighting the perspective of the modern business owner with regard to that persistent management relic – The Meeting. In a time of email, instant messaging and automated reporting, face to face meetings are still vitally important. Face to face meetings provide context for the ideas being exchanged and reduce the inevitable “noise” inherent in modern communications. When critical business decisions are at stake, every advantage counts. Disclaimer: The above clip is misleading if you are being requested to meet with your manager (in which case you are probably expected to be prepared with sufficient information to provide context for the conversation).
I hope you found this as insightful as I did. I would appreciate it if you clicked on the share bar to the left.
