When you are the top dog at your company, your schedule fills up fast with meetings. CEOs spend more than 70% of their day in meetings, according to the Harvard Business Review.

But meetings don’t need to be a massive time suck. 

In this episode, you’ll hear how we make meetings manageable through calendar blocking. This practice helps your mental organization and allows your subconscious to prepare for your meetings in advance.

We also talk about research-based benefits of agenda setting, creating a “parking lot” for ideas, starting with the end in mind, assigning time keepers, and how to create a culture that stops remote multitasking and actually engages during a teleconference.
