Hey friends! In Part 2 of the Calendar Challenge, I’m talking about knowing when NOT to call a meeting.

If you’ve been following along with the Calendar Challenge tips and tricks on our Facebook page, you’ve probably figured a few of them out already. Today, let’s talk about why gathering the whole group together may NOT be the best idea, especially when it leads to passive-aggressive behaviors and can actually hurt your team.

Check out the video below for my thoughts!

After you’ve checked out the video, won’t you head down to the comments section? We want to hear from you! What meetings are YOU tired of? How do you feel they could be better approached?

You can make a real difference for someone else when you share your story. So don’t be shy about leaving a comment. Every little bit of wisdom helps!

Now if you’re saying, whoa Stefanie, Part 2?! You might have missed the Calendar Challenge!
