Leadership Essentials: Masterful Meetings

There's no shortage of jokes or complaints about how horrible meetings can be. They're boring. They're pointless. They're a waste of time. Leaders know better. Leaders know that meetings are essential for excellence. Leaders know that meetings are the ultimate lever, capable of producing exponential results. Tom Peters says, "The idea of using "meeting" and "excellence" in the same sentence may strike you as absurd. But, again, if meetings are your principal leadership stage, then they must either be the platform for the aspiration and expression of Excellence or you are not serious about Excellence. A meeting for the leader is pure, unadulterated theater." For your leadership "theater" to be successful, there are several "performances" you'll need to master and add to your portfolio. Each is essential to your team's continued alignment and effectiveness.
