According to Dan Rockwell, the Leadership Freak (I love that name)…

Here is the #1 problem with meetings:

The Bosses run them.

But that can’t be a problem in the church, right?

Oh, but to the contrary!

Dan says: “Bosses need to run meetings because they need to exercise authority and control. That attitude hinders free, honest involvement by participants. Worse yet, controlling-bosses obstruct ownership. Others won’t own what you own.”

Ouch.  I’ve heard horror stories of this happening in churches all over.

Maybe been in a meeting or two like that myself a time or two.

Here’s Dan’s advice on how to solve the problem

“Sit at the foot of the table, not the head.”

Dave would love to see some comments on this one!  Let’s get some healthy debate going. Agree? Disagree? Want to throw something at me? What has been your experience?
