“Team meetings can run amuck in hundreds of ways. People aren’t prepared, they show up late, they engage in side conversations, or remain silent, only to have the real meeting out in the hall.
After facilitating literally thousands of meetings over the last twenty-five years, I have found a few ground rules that really work to set boundaries for people and create an environment in which people can participate in a safe and meaningful way.”
– Believe me I have seen meetings that are just a big waste of time! Rules are great though. I like time limits, no food or drink and no bathroom breaks. Meetings just seem to go so much faster then. -ed.
