A Slightly Different Meeting

December 14, 2009

As someone who leads several meetings a month, I used to always view my meetings as a place where people would come to support my program, my ideas and my vision.

After four years of this process I’ve realized something slightly different.

When people come to my meetings I need to see how I can support their ideas and their vision. My role as the leader is to serve and support their fresh ideas and perspectives about helping.

I used to think people came to my meetings to help me, but now they come to my meetings so I can help them.
