Business meetings thoughts

 

you are what.....

 A quote:

Business meetings are more or less the same all over the world, and have been since the beginning of time. There is the person in charge, the person supposedly in charge, and the person wanting to be in charge, their minions, their enemies, and those waverers who float gently downstream hoping things won’t get too choppy. And there is always a dispute, which serves the purpose of making half-felt antagonisms real. Sometimes these are important and justify the energy expended on them. But not often.

Have you been in meetings like the ones listed above? I have. What is your role? The leader? The supposed leader? The minion? The enemy or frienemy? The waverer? What have you done to make it better for yourself and others?

Thank you for coming along on these 40 days of book thoughts as I completed some spring cleaning on my book shelves. Did you like any of them?  Which were you favorites?
