Meetings should not be boring

A typical staff meeting is often a boring uncreative process. At such a meeting, a formal, professional atmosphere is combined with a meeting agenda to keep people "focused," or "on track." The meeting manager fails to ask for creating ideas, even at the most opportune points. In such meetings, the participants get bored, and freewheeling is bound to occur.

Vadim Kotelnikov humorous quotes Meetings are dangerous life − they can bore you to death.
