Meetings, meetings, meetings

Meetings for meetings sake? Meetings about meetings? In a meeting when you're supposed to be in another meeting? In a meeting that doesn't really concern you when you should be planning or setting your classroom up? In a meeting that nobody has come prepared for? Planning a meeting and don't want people to feel any of the above?

Applying the 4 Core Elements to meetings is a terrifying thing as nearly all of them fail the test of containing engagement, experience, empowerment or evidence that shows that something of significance took place!

I opened up a link from a guy called Brian Lockwood on Twitter recently, and I'm so glad that I did. The webpage that you land on is a gift from the powers that reside somewhere up there in the sky! If everyone who is planning a meeting of any kind follows the guidance that is provided on this webpage, the number of meetings we attend will drop, and the ones we do attend will be worthwhile.

I urge you to check it out and then make as many other people as possible aware of it as soon as possible!!!
