But first, you know these meeting behaviours, don’t you?
Still, win-win, collaborative meetings do not need to be a feel-good fantasy!
They are entirely within your reach
Just try one of these recipes in the book Monkey-Free Meetings.
Not only do you get…
Meeting Resuscitator: When you want to make sure your organization will implement the plan.
Teams at War: Get the angry / frustrated / in-denial teams collaborating before that next big meeting.
