Tradeoffs in meeting systems.
Forums support autonomy, encouraging individual perspective sharing.
Decision making discussions are the exercise of choice, which is how a group wields its authority and control.
Cooperative meetings entail team building, which develops a group’s skills, capabilities, and cohesion.
- Soapboxes take autonomy too far, away from learning.
- Muster is a show of control, only demonstrating ability to compel others.
- A love-in is too far into cooperation, putting feelings and process ahead of achieving results.
- Refusal to choose purpose for meetings creates meandering.
