How meeting reminders help everyone

Recently, I received a question from a LinkedIn Learning learner in my course, Leading Productive Meetings.

She asked why I recommend creating meeting reminders—after all, doesn’t that lead to more interruptions? Technically, yes, but here is why I find it’s necessary.

From my perspective, the advanced warning gives people an opportunity to power down from what they’re currently engaged in with work and arrive at the meeting on time—as opposed to scrambling at the last minute and showing up late.

I’d love to hear your perspective! Comment below. If you’re interested in learning how to make meetings more productive, you can find my course on LinkedIn Learning, Leading Productive Meetings, at DaveCrenshaw.com/meet.
