Research shows that the actions of the meeting leader often make or break the meeting. Meeting leaders set the tone, frame the discussion, and guide the group to a successful outcome.

That's the idea, at least. The reality often falls far short of what's possible.

So there's no question that the quality of meeting leadership largely determines the meeting's success. But once we accept this, we're left with many other questions like:

  • What does it mean to "lead" in a meeting?
  • What are the characteristics of a good leader? Are these characteristics the same for all teams, or do different workplaces need different leaders?
  • Beyond different teams, how does great leadership vary across different types of meetings?
  • Is there just one leader in every meeting? And if not, how can team members share the leadership responsibilities?

Dr. Andy Walshe and Jurgen Heitman founded Liminal Collective to explore questions like these. (Well, maybe without quite so much emphasis on meetings specifically.) They've worked with elite teams from a range of disciplines spanning sport, military, design, medicine, and business, researching the ways that leaders must adapt to the specialized needs of each team.

In this session, Jurgen and Andy will share insights and stories from their work. Then, we'll work together to explore how these ideas relate to our own experiences and can be used to improve our everyday business meetings.
