  • Editor's Note

    Dear readers,
     
    I’m sure many of you spend more time in meetings than you’d like, especially when it seems like a simple email could have done the job. However, before you start phasing out meetings, check out an article published this week in the Harvard Business Review.

    Thanks for reading!
