Ever been to one of *those* meetings? Somebody is grandstanding. Somebody else is having a side conversation. That person over there might as well be alone in the room with their smartphone. Nobody is making decisions. The energy is low. Or just elsewhere. The funny thing about those meetings is that nobody is really being bad or anything - that stuff just kind of happens. The funnier thing about those meetings is that everyone knows what's happening but hardly anybody knows how to turn that ship around.

Meeting-ship-turning-around is a fantastic skill to have. It doesn't have a great name in commonly-spoken English - perhaps we could call it meeting-steering? At Zingerman's we call it facilitation. Either way, it sure is a great skill. And it takes training, practice and time to master.
