Don’t you just love days when the atmosphere around you is filled with hope? I do. Such enthusiasm was apparent at a church meeting this morning. Fund raising activities and ideas brought excitement and joy to the table.
I know, not all meetings can be like this. Let’s face it meetings can be pretty dry. Do they have to be? What needs to happen to move them forward?
Many folk I know have a feeling of dread when they anticipate board-room settings, with talks of over-spending, and under-funding. I get it. Sometimes I’m the same way. The key is to look for the positive and bring to light all that creates energy. At least try to balance out the heavy “stuff” with laughter and perhaps even song.
Are you dreading an upcoming meeting? What steps can you take to perhaps enliven the time you meet?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
