Q: How to support a colleague who finds meetings extremely tiring?
A: Sometimes, particularly in longer meetings, it helps to have a break so everyone can come back refreshed – this will probably help tiring colleagues the most. So you could suggest to the chair that some people are flagging and quick break might be in order.
Another tip is to make sure your colleague is fully engaged in the meeting – it’s usually more tiring if you’re being very passive in a meeting than if you’re contributing actively.
