Running a meeting can be an excellent way to make a decision, gather ideas, or inspire a team—not to mention an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your organizational, motivational, collaborative, and leadership skills. But we often fail to approach meetings with the kind of discipline and attention that they deserve, and so things frequently don’t go as well as they could.
