Episode 28 – Infinite Meetings

It’s meetings all the way down this episode…here’s our question:

At what point is it appropriate to interrupt a manager’s meeting and inform him that he’s wasting everybody’s time? Right now, I am sitting with 18 people gathered in a big conference room and the manager is going through his spreadsheet of projects to get updates from each person.

How do you go about giving that sort of feedback to your manager and how do you deal with time-waste meetings?

As promised…Zoey…
