Yesterday we had a meeting... Everytime I heard my boss say this, "Meeting Starts", I always feel nervous... especially when we are to present our monthly report... Gosh... it's so trembling... Do you feel like i feel? What do you do to feel relax before meeting starts?

I hate meetings, even those that I call for or chair. It's sometimes a waste of time - at least those I chair, I can control the time, and cut short those people who like to drag on, or go out of topics. It's terrible, when my boss chair the meetings - we've meetings that start from 6 pm to 11pm. And one of our review meetings started at 3pm, and ended at 3am.

Lol, that depends on the meeting, doesn't it. And how the monthly reports are this time around. It's always a problem, if there is bad news, lol. And nobody wants to be the bearer of the bad news nor the one to have to explain why. I just take a deep breath, try to have all my arguments together and try to be prepared as best as can be.

I hate when I have to go to meetings, mostly because I don't really get along so well with the heads of the other departments. I don't mind giving my reports so much since I always stay ahead of the game and am always finding ways to cut cost without affecting any of the employees.The meetings usualy run the same way each time, a lot of the other guys like to poke fun at my expense but I only have to see them for an hour or two every two weeks so it's not so bad.
