    I'm often invited to meetings "just in case" something comes up that needs my SME assistance - so I multitask for 95% of the meeting. Anyone have suggestions on how to stop the continual "just in case" invites?

    At my company we’re swamped with work and, since we can’t hire more people, everyone is busy every minute of the day. So the fact that a large department with extensive coworker involvement is meeting intensive means multi-tasking is required just to keep up. No time for social media, or any media in general, just a lot of email checking. Seriously, these people have meetings to plan meetings and then one-up each other on how many hours they worked that week. If a meeting is actually needed and is discussing important topics, the participants are engaged and more likely to give it their undivided attention. If ever there was a group that needed to “work smarter, not harder”, this is definitely it.

    addiction is a terrible thing! all phones should be collected at the beginning of a meeting and then returned when you leave that meeting. concentrate and apply critical thinking
