How to ruin / damage a team meeting - fast.

Much has been written about successful team meetings. Here is the other side of a successful team meeting: how to ruin / damage it fast.

If you want to demoralize your team members and utterly wreck a team meeting, do any of the following:

1. Try spending an hour and a half talking about things that could have been shared in a short e-mail.

2. Hold meetings without any purpose.

3. Spend lots of time over problems that matter only to one person.

4. Show up for the meeting 10 minutes late without any apologies or explanations.

5. Show no interest in the meeting - keep texting or reading your email during the meeting.

6. Just get up and leave the room in the middle of the meeting without saying a word and don't come back.


Unfortunately, it happens all the time.
