What job field are you in? I will go crazy in the future if I get a job and I have to attend meetings ... Is this a typical thing that happens in any job field?i have to take a "communications training" next week and tomorrow i have to attend a marketing meeting about customer survey. i will be just observing but i've been told that i have to do these kind of meetings in the future.
Sounds like hell on earth. I hate activities like that which are just reminiscent of the HORRIBLE days in high school when I actually found myself in these kind of situations.communications training was a disaster. it was a class of 25 other employees from various divisions. the trainer had us go around asking everyone's unique fact about themselves. we had to get at least 12 or we would be punished by singing in front of the class.
after lunch we played a game similar to musical chair except that the one who didn't get a chair had to pick someone and say a pickup / flirting line to him/her
a couple of people who came back late from lunch were punished by dancing in front of the class
I never speak in the team meetings too whether it be a conference call or in a conference room. :| I become soo stressed that I freeze myself and don't move my hands and legs.I just hate meetings and I have many of them. Almost every week I must attend one. I almost never speak at this meetings, but I feel extremely uncomfortable. Sometimes I pretend I'm sick and I run away.
