How to have a meeting

I had a great chat on the good, the bad and the ugly of organizational meetings with Phil Daoust of The Guardian newspaper as part of a excellent in-depth article which appeared today in G2 (April 23) entitled "How to have a meeting". Here are the online links to it:

The Guardian Newspaper

And here are 3 of the articles on meetings we discussed:

1. Five tips for a perfect meeting
2. Conference Calls: Twelve Golden Rules
3. Run better meetings with Roberts Rules 1896

Thanks for the comment and spotting the date typo. You and I both know only too well the kind of meetings described.

Best Regards

BUT according to Professor Dietrich Dorner, in his excellent book The Logic Of Failure: Recognizing And Avoiding Error In Complex Situations, there are two very tempting but ultimately disastrous tangents a leader can pursue in a crisis instead of addressing the real issues.
