Meetings don’t have to be boring or unproductive
Some of them have turned out pretty well. Queen Isabella met with Christopher Columbus to plan a trip.
George Washington met with the First Continental Congress to plan a country.
Martin Luther King met with anyone who would listen about equal rights and the end of racial discrimination. Manager Brian Epstein met with the Beatles and changed popular music.
But, why do we have to have so many meetings? Can we find ways to make them shorter and more interesting? Can we can arrange more continuity between meetings to make them more efficient?
Why can’t meeting leaders stay on message? Why can’t meeting leaders stay on schedule? The answers to these questions and more are found within this great program.
