Mailing it in?

Have you ever sat in a meeting where you could just tell that people were ‘mailing it in’?

By this I mean that the people aren’t taking part, they are there physically but that’s about all. They are not engaging with the conversation and participation within the meeting is generally low.

If you recognise meetings (or workplaces) like this then you have an opportunity to improve the productivity in these areas. In fact, recognition is probably the greatest step towards improving the situation (that’s why we spend so much time mapping things out) – if you put this recognition into the context of the situation the answers to improve the status quo will become obvious.

Keep an eye out for those people who are present in form only, and then come up with some ideas to get them engaged.
