Don't have a clue about what got me going on meetings. Maybe a book I saw on "Running Better Meetings"—or some such. Meetings, I argue in this Special Presentation, are not about efficiency/brevity-at-all-costs!
Meetings are "what bosses do."
Hence ... BY DEFINITION ... meetings are Leadership Opportunity #1. (No kidding. Think about it. If "how you spend your time" is the clearest statement of what you stand for and how you develop your people and your message—then meetings are the heart of the matter.)
FYI: All meetings are ... THEATER!
Hope this little presentation makes you ponder a bit ...
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
