Everyone has sat through a two-hour meeting thinking how it could have been sorted in a five-minute email discussion.

These meetings tend to be monotone and mundane, aimlessly drawing out what could've been summarized in ten minutes.

Author and founder of Leaderpath, a leadership coaching program, Caterina Kostoula aims to teach readers how meetings can be utilized to their fullest potential.
