Bad Meetings: Why They’re Bad & How to Make Them Better | The Unstuck Church Podcast


Meeting dread—It’s real. For me, at least. And since you clicked on this link, I guess it’s real for you, too. I should clarify. I don’t hate all meetings. Just bad ones.

Lots of organizations are bad at meetings, but churches are near the top of the list of worst offenders. In this episode, Amy and I share principles for meetings that work (aka: meetings that don’t waste time and money and actually help the organization create positive action), and a quick formula to self-assess your organization’s meeting track record.

In this episode, we’re talking about:

  • The real purpose of meetings, and how to make sure they stick to it.

  • How the “Rule of 8” impacts what you can accomplish.

  • A simple formula to self-assess your organization’s meeting track record.

Join the Conversation:

Is your team guilty of bad meetings? Or, do you have a culture of excellent meetings? We’d love to hear your thoughts on how churches can do better in this area. Comment on this post or share on social media using the hashtag #unstuckchurch.
