Here are the billionaires who efficiently handle their meetings.
1. Jeff Bezos:
Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon, has a somewhat unique strategy for keeping meetings under control. Buy two pizzas. If that doesn't comfortably feed the crowd, there are too many people in the room, which could make the meeting pointlessly drag on and stifle creativity. to prevent groupthink and feed independent ideas, Bezos keeps Amazon's meeting with only calculated people.
2. Sheryl Sandberg:
Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, handles meeting in an old-school manner and relies on her trusty spiral bound notebook. For every meeting, she carefully jots down points to be addressed in meetings. Once everything on the list is crossed off the meeting is adjourned, even if it was only eight minutes long.
3. Warren Buffet:
Warren Buffet doesn't have scheduled meetings. He prefers to not schedule anything more than 24 hours in advance. Buffet focuses on what needs his attention at the very moment instead of being held prisoner to a strict schedule.
4. Steve Jobs:
Steve Jobs was known for only inviting the important people to the room, and even reportedly asked attendees to leave if he felt crowded. Too many people took away the simplicity under which Jobs worked best. When the Obama Administration invited Steve Jobs at the white house with other tech giants, he tried to decline. There would be too many people in the room, and he preferred a personal invitation. the less the better.
5. Elon Musk:
Elon Musk believes in deconstructing a topic hen building it up. Meeting attendees deconstructs an idea or situation to "first principles", what Musk sees as the most basic form of truths and facts, to give them the freedom to think outside the box. Then, they put the box together once again, and analyze it from a new perspective.
