Are you too busy to have a meeting?

I was talking with a colleague today about some of my terrible meeting failures where I wanted to get something done, but instead of planning, I just pulled people together in a meeting and started rambling. You see, my job wasn’t to plan meetings, it was to align an employee’s skills and performance with the organization’s need, and what I hadn’t done was spend enough time planning the best way to communicate that with my team. If I had spent the time to fully spell out what was expected of the team, how we would measure success, and especially what was expected when, then we could have had a productive meeting and we all would have met our goals.

But, I was too busy for that…

Have you ever been too busy to have a meeting? What did you do about it?
