Should we have this meeting?

These are great and well worth reading and implementing them. The key is in the doing. We can make a difference. We have to put some effort into it.

You rarely have the chance to quickly alter the culture of a group the way you do when you organize a retreat or a meeting.

So many of the variables are within your control, and the outcome is often directly related to the choices you make. Sure, there are pressures on you to compromise toward average, to fit in and to make the providers you work with fit the status quo. But if you resist, you can make a huge difference.

I’ve written four posts about off-sites, presentations and conferences. If they’re relevant to you and your team, I hope you’ll read and share:
