Make meetings shorter and require that recommendations/suggestions are a part of the process. I book meetings in 15 minute increments. It forces the employee to think about how to communicate the issues efficiently. I find that employees appreciate this tactic because they prefer to get work done instead of sitting in meetings all day.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Raquel Graham, Founder & CEO of Roq Innovation. Raquel is a female inventor and entreprenuer from Chicago. She created two products — Headlightz® and NEKZ® — aimed at solving problems in her own life. Both products have achieved great success and she has three more products ready to launch in 2019 Q1.
