Meeting MadLabs

I remember as a kid playing the game “MadLibs” where you would pick random words and put them into blank spaces to make funny sentences. One of my favorite corporate game to play is “Meeting MadLibs.” It makes those long boring calls go by so much quicker. Here is all you need to play…

  • Think of a random word
  • Challenge your friend to use that word in a sentence during the meeting
  • Stay on mute so as not to laugh when they do use it

"Figuring out how to deliver on this project is like Aqua Man swimming through the ocean..."
