The true cost of any meeting is not what you’ve spent.
It’s what you didn’t achieve, but might have.
Results happen when your team gets down to the deep strategic conversations it needs to have.
When it gets past its politics, the conflicts, the blind spots, the attachments and the habits of thought to make deeply considered decisions and arrive at a consensus perspective.
That’s the way that it’s supposed to happen, but seldom does. That’s because all these team issues need to be flushed out and cleared up, before you can move your challenge forward.
