Making Meetings Matter

  • Dan NorenbergEmail author
Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


In this chapter, you learn six insights to structure and lead meetings that stimulate performance and a culture of continuous improvement throughout your organization. There is too much cruising in leadership meetings. Not only do executives miss opportunities to accelerate the impact of their leadership decisions in the business, they set a “cruising culture” for everyone else in the organization. When meetings are not organized properly, people are not prepared, the right people are not present, or there is little sense of urgency to use the meeting as a catalyst for improvement and growth, the costs are staggering. The way you do anything is the way you do everything. This means the way your meetings run is the way your business runs. In this chapter, you learn how to create and use meetings that give birth to a high performance company culture.
