One unproductive meeting- what does that cost you? We decided to build a little cost calculator to help you gauge that. Most of us don’t really stop to consider what that meeting cost us. In our calculator, we built in the average employee salary plus any contractors as well.
We couldn’t figure out how to measure the additional cost of the time you are frustrated by those unproductive meetings. So we kept it simple. Just three people in a hour meeting that was poorly organized and didn’t accomplish it’s objectives.
We then asked what happens if you had one of these a day? What would that cost each
week? We stopped at the one week mark, because we didn’t want to make anyone cry. We do try to focus on the positive after all! If you want to try it out for yourself, you can find it here.
We launched this calculator last week- and the first results have been surprising. Usually the feedback goes something like “Wait a second, all it takes is for one unproductive meeting to go to productive? And I justified my price for a year? Huh."
We know it’s a little different for you to think of meetings as a process. It puts a little more structure in place to help increase the odds of success. It takes a moment to slow down and breathe, and put more intention into your meetings. To give you more space to try it (and so you won’t be hard on yourself if it takes a hot minute to get started), we are just starting to do some longer free trials with customers. If you are interested in learning more about this, having us give you a demo of Bella or giving it a try to see if it would help you- please reach out to me. We’ll help you reign in that total cost of meetings so that more move from unproductive to productive.
