We have never had as many meetings as we had since the Corona crisis started. Rarely are these meeting clearly organized, or are goals formulated for each agenda item. That’s one of the reasons we’re getting tired of meetings. Organizations have to invest much more in coordination – and coordination is all about communication.
It also means that the meeting chair must be able to coach people (and people are coachable), give feedback, and address them to ensure that they speak to each other. These are skills that require diplomacy and persuasion and oversight in conversations.
