Leaders lead meetings, but few have the know-how to lead interesting meetings that advance the main cause of the group. What makes a good meeting interesting? How do leaders cultivate trust so that members of the meeting participate authentically and refuse to get caught up in political posturing? Is it possible to host meetings that are efficient, yet life-changing? In this course students are required to envision meetings as being venues for sound arguments, not quarrels. It’s a course that explains the reason why leaders need to be emotionally mature.
