The best way to make a crucial meeting more effective may be to let someone else run it
A common frustration of work teams is that crucial meetings are too often disappointing and ineffective. Participants settle into their comfortable and familiar roles, and leaders consumed by running the meeting are unable to creatively contribute and guide as they’d like. Decisions aren’t made, problems aren’t solved, and the meeting accomplishes little and satisfies few. There’s a better way, and it’s often as simple as breaking free of the routine.
