Avoid Death by Meeting

Everything You Need To Know About Conducting Great Meetings.

Leadership is primarily all about relationships. That means that no matter how hard we try, we can't ever get away from holding meetings and working with people face to face. Managing a successful team or a successful business requires skill in holding effective meetings. In fact, we could go so far as to say that meetings are to professional managers what practice is to a professional athlete. So why are most meetings that we attend just so awful?

Most meetings suffer from crushing boredom because we have designed them to avoid the one thing that makes meetings interesting - conflict. Conflict and drama are what keep us entertained during a movie or television show, but do they really have a place in our meetings? Creative conflict has to be a part of the meeting or you won't keep people's attention and you won't get all of their input. When your team members trust each other enough to disagree and to offer their input without any reservation, then you know you are making the best decisions possible. But most employees feel that they can't do this, so they sit in meetings with their teeth clenched and silently determine that they'll never get behind whatever decision is made.

In our "Avoid Death by Meeting" mini-course you'll learn:

  • The problem with most meetings
  • Why trust and conflict are so important
  • What causes people to disengage
