Your company is reflected in your meetings

So often you can find out everything you need to know about a company by attending one of their internal meetings held by the owner.  Is there a sense of urgency?  Is the meeting organized?  Does it start and end on time?  Are employees attentive?  Does the owner “sell” the employees?  The answers are always reflective of the way the company is run and the way your customers/clients perceive your company.  Change can begin with changing the tone of your meetings.  As a sage professional once said, “a meeting over 15 minutes long is a therapy session and you don’t have a license for that.”
