I’m curious what things you do to make meetings fun, to make the long march more tolerable?
You've correctly identified the problem with most meetings that I've seen. They're "long marches".
If you want to make a meeting "fun", make sure it's well controlled. Keep people "on the point". Make "status" meetings more like "scrums". "What did you do yesterday? What are you doing today? Have you run into any showstoppers or things that will cause a delay and what are they? Who can you talk to to change that? NEXT!"
Side conversations and long winded discussions on possible solutions should not be included in status meetings. Those should be separate because not everyone has a stake in such detail.
People are busy. Make daily status meetings short and sweet and they'll be "fun" automatically.
