Meetings are a means of giving people a chance to contribute. Meetings are also the nursery where the people's skills of listening, speaking, and building good working relationships are honed. They are where people practice being courteously challenging and confident, and they are where people are fascinated and fascinating. Meetings are where people can raise the level of their practical intelligence (PI) as they learn to gather the knowledge that helps them read situations correctly, setting aside personal preoccupations to be attentive to another. Meetings should be a "creative" forum, where ideas are exchanged, current practices are challenged, fresh thinking is evaluated, and consensus is reached. This article offers tips on how to effectively organize meetings and some pointers for a chairman or a convenor, whose role is crucial to a meeting's effectiveness, both on the day and in being prepared.
