How to Instantly Improve Meetings

TRANSKRIP
Let’s imagine you’re about to hold a meeting to make an important decision and you’re in a hurry.
Is it better to hold the meeting standing up or sitting down?
Researchers from the University of Missouri asked groups of people to imagine that they’d crashed on the moon
and then only a few pieces of equipment had survived the crash.
The groups were asked to identify which bits of equipment were most important
and their decisions were compared to the correct answers supplied by NASA.
Some of the groups held their meeting standing up and the others held them sitting down.
Sit-down meetings lasted 34% longer but the two types of meetings produce the same number of correct decisions.
And so next time you need to hold a meeting in order to make an important decision, you can save time by simply standing up.
