Late arrivals at meetings do more than just interrupt presentations or cause others to wait for their arrival.

If you've followed the concepts introduced in episodes 020 and 034 of our Meeting Leadership Podcast (see links below)--which explain the costs of each meeting and the annual costs--you have an idea how frequent tardiness can hurt your bottom line. 

In MLP #037, we discuss ways to identify and eliminate problem areas regarding meeting tardiness, such as:

  • Developing a culture where showing up late to a meeting is unacceptable
  • Making the consequences of tardiness clear to your employees
  • The vital question every leader should be asking their employees and themselves about meetings: Why are we here?

We'll revisit the concept of Meeting Return on Investment (MROI) introduced the earlier chapters, and apply it to a specific part of meeting effectiveness.
