Seth Godin posts on The new standard of meetings and conferences. The piece provides practical approaches to making meetings/conferences work. But I'm most intrigued by the implication of how organizations accept the status que. The practice of pretending that yesterday's dinner is really not left-overs.
I know many people who work in organizations that have meetings and interactions without knowing why. Maybe it falls under blind allegiance, maybe a desire to hold onto what once was.
Ever sat in a conference or meeting and found yourself more interested in your watch?
Acknowledged or not, many leaders are under the hypnotic spell of being ok and satisfied.
Time for some creative discomfort and dissatisfaction.
