Meetings are excellent tools for generating ideas, expanding on thoughts and managing group activity. But this face-to-face contact with team members and colleagues can easily fail in spite of adequate preparation and effective leadership.
Ever attend a meeting, either at the office or at a conference center, where the room looked as uninspiring? Maybe there was too much clutter, or the desks and chairs were unorganized. Or perhaps the room was too small or too big for the size of the group. Whatever the case, a poorly arranged conference room can end up as more of a distraction than a room of production and can severely affect the outcome of a meeting.
Sitting in a dull, lifeless conference room might not motivate even the highly talented individual to speak up and take action, leading to an unproductive & uncomfortable meeting.
