Bad meetings are the worst. They’re a waste of time, and they feel like a distraction from real work. Mamie Kanfer Stewart and Tai Tsao, co-authors of the book Momentum, are on a mission to make meetings more effective, meaningful and enjoyable.
In this episode of Smashing the Plateau, a podcast that interview experts who know how to fix problems that keep people and businesses stuck, host David Shriner-Cahn interviewed Meeteor Founder and CEO of Meeteor and author of Momentum: Creating Effective, Engaging and Enjoyable Meetings on effective meeting practices.
On this episode, host Mike Vardy and Meeteor CEO Mamie Kanfer Stewart talk about meeting strategies and pitfalls to avoid, such as how to avoid back-to-back meetings, going into a meeting with not enough information, dealing with late meetings attendees, and whether or not status meetings are useful when done right (or useless no matter what). If you want to get more out of your meetings – whether you love them or don't – then this episode is for you.
Meetings are tricky things. Many people hate them, because they are considered boring or a waste of time. When done poorly, they can dissolve productivity and cost your company significantly. When they are done right, they can align the entire team around key objectives. Better meetings can facilitate innovation and improve your organizational culture. But what does “done right” look like? How can the learnings from effective team meetings translate into action?
To answer these questions, I recently caught up with Mamie Kanfer Stewart, Founder and CEO of Meeteor. Below, Mamie discusses how to conduct better meetings and seamlessly integrate them with the rest of your workflow. She also shares her plan for helping individual employees thrive so that the team and entire company can succeed.

Too often we don't fully exploit the potential of our day-to-day business meetings, so it becomes easy to feel like they're wasting our time. When nobody's sure of a meeting's purpose, its goals and expected outcomes, or what decisions really need to be made, collaboration becomes difficult. People wind up spending an hour talking about a grand plan, after which nothing actually happens. Meeteor, which starts at $9 per user per month, aims to help with that problem.
