Run time: 20 Minutes
There's always someone who "steals" time -- and therefore money and resources -- while you're trying to conduct a productive and efficient meeting. Meeting robbers are well intentioned but they lack the skills it takes to keep things moving forward.
This amusing film shows the seven most-wanted robbers at work. Their aliases: The Show-Off, The Critic, The Whisperer, The Assignment-Misser, The Rambler, The Super-Seller and... The Meeting Leader. See them all here in a cross-functional meeting that loses 35 hours of company time before the Meeting Leader recognizes that it is up to him to get things back on track.
The program teaches that meetings can be essential but should be used as last resorts when there's no better or less costly way to discuss and disseminate information. When meetings are needed, the leader must assemble all data in advance, be thoroughly prepared and quickly recognize and put to an end to unproductive behaviors.

Praise for Meeting Robbers:
"What makes Meeting Robbers such a terrific training tool is that it humorously depicts the types of behavior that are most likely to derail a meeting. Your viewers will see themselves, or someone they know, in these examples. What's more, the program provides easy-to-use action steps for correcting each of the problem behaviors."
-The Bob Pike Group
"I highly recommend it for every organization that has meetings, from the smallest unit to the largest companies."
