I'm sure there are some jobs out there that do not require staff meetings. But all of my jobs have required staff meetings to a degree. What are some recommendations and things that help you make it through the disruption in your normal work schedule to sit and talk somewhat pointlessly face-to-face with people?

Also, any one have experience with video conference? How do you find video conference as opposed to face-to-face meetings?

Personally I try to prepare as much as possible when I know I will have something to report. What is the hardest for me is answering the questions that are unrelated to what I have reported. I notice that my irritation goes up as the meeting goes on and on. I just can't wait to go back to my cubicle with my stuff where I put it. As for video conference, I find it extremely hard to understand and respond to the person. I think that the way that the voice is transferred makes it impossible for me to understand. I think with much more practice it might become easier, but I still think that when I'm looking at a tv my mind wanders too much.

At the staff meeting it is important to avoid getting staff infection.

What are you good at or qualified at?

Anything entreprnuerial would most likely not have staff meetings, although that would be a drastic change.
