Q: How to prevent meetings being boring?
A: This is quite tricky, because “boring” for some people can be “interesting” for others. If people are getting bored in a meeting it’s an indication that perhaps they shouldn’t be there – it could be that the topic is too specialised/technical for them, or too high-level/superficial. Either way, it’s about getting the right people at the right meeting.
Of course, if everyone is finding a meeting boring, it could be that the chair needs to look at some of the other tips about running a meeting!
