The purpose of this research project was to explore the impact of a short-form mindfulness based intervention on the participant perception of workplace meeting effectiveness. Scholarship in the science of meetings estimates that nearly half of meetings in organizations are ineffective. Several reasons may exist for such perceived ineffectiveness but often include individual counterproductive meeting behaviors such as rumination and emotional labor. In a separate stream of emerging scholarship, mindfulness is related to a range of positive outcomes for individuals in organizations; including reductions in emotional labor and rumination. Outcomes were assessed qualitatively with eleven participants in a large technology company who regularly attend meetings. Results of the study demonstrated positive outcomes related to meeting citizenship behaviors, overall perception of meeting effectiveness and antecedents to counterproductive meeting behaviors. Consideration of the evidence on mindfulness as connected to meeting science is explored.
