Meetings

Confession time…I like meetings. Not all meetings…meetings that have a point and are about something interesting. Some people really dread them. There are good reasons for this. If you haven’t read Patrick Lencioni’s book, Death by Meeting, it’ll fill you in on why so many people hate meetings. One of the main principle’s is… "Don’t ask someone to attend somebody else’s meeting." We’ve started trying to do this a bit more at HOCC, and it seems to help.

But a good meeting, talking about strategic things, is awesome.

Do you love or hate meetings? Why?

  1. I do my best thinking when I have other people in the room discussing a topic or trying to be discerning about a decision…so yes, if it’s got a purpose, put me in a meeting.
