Meetings can be hellish.
But how much better would our meetings go if we were genuinely curious about the people and their work? What if we asked important questions that we didn’t already have an answer to?
What if we didn’t need to defend ourselves or our positions? What if we listened then were listened to?
And what if we captured action commitments (who has agreed to do what by when), shifted any detailed conversations to a subset of the team after the main meeting, and finished on time?
Meetings like that would heavenly and dang productive, too.
