Many meetings incorrectly focus on logistics when they should be centered on strategy. Also: one last snapshot of ASAE’s 2019 Annual Meeting & Exposition.
In planning a meeting—whether a team meeting at the office or a major conference—you may be focusing on the wrong things, says Priya Parker, author of The Art of Gathering.
“Most of us take the majority of gatherings for granted. We’ve relegated the function of the convener into a logistical job,” she said in an interview with The Chronicle of Philanthropy. “When you realize that gathering is a form of strategy and is a form of culture change, then you also realize that we often start with the wrong questions, which are the logistical questions. We actually need to start with the strategic questions.”
