Meetings...No Neutral Ground

All the world can be divided into two categories:

You hate meetings...

You really hate meetings...

While those two categories might be a little overstated, they are probably not too far from the truth in most organizations.

Fast Company's Gina Trapani has a great article here entitled "Unconventional Cures for Meeting-itis". It started me thinking about meetings: how necessary they often are but how poorly led they almost always are. I stand guilty here - after over 23 years of staff leadership in ChurchWorld, and in almost six years as a church development consultant, I have "led" my share (plus some) of poor meetings.

This week, how about a whirlwind tour of some great meeting tips from some of the best in the business?
