No one like ineffective meetings and meetings cost money, even the good ones. So before the next meeting, think of the following.
Come prepared with a few questions - it allows you to take faster and smarter connections.
Ask questions. People don’t care if you ask questions as long as you listen to the answer. I’ve learned that no boss or someone more experienced than you will think you are stupid because you ask questions as long as you listen to the answer. So ask questions and listen to the answer.
Be in time - respect each other, of course, this applies to everyone, including managers and decisions makers.
