Impressive Collaboration: Pyramid of Giza

While putting together a Pecha Kucha presentation about the power of working together, I read a bit about the Pyramid of Giza.

What amazes me most is that of the 4,500 years this pyramid has existed, it was the tallest structure in the world for 3,800 of those years.

That’s crazy.

Also, the heaviest of the 2.3 million blocks used in its construction were transported over 500 miles. That might not seem like a big deal today, but in 2,500 BC?

That’s mind-blowing.

Amazing things can happen when people work together on a common goal.

The Ugly Truth About Meetings

Fuze has created an infographic addressing “The Ugly Truth About Meetings.” What is the ugly truth about meetings? Most of the time they aren’t effective.

To me this is no surprise at all. I experience ineffective meetings all the time. The key takeaways from this infographic are also not surprising:

  1. Schedule shorter meetings
  2. Set clear expectations
  3. Staying focused
  4. Capture key points and action items
