Disengagement During Meetings
By Beth Armknecht Miller, Special to Overdrive
Have you ever been in a meeting where one person decided to display a negative attitude? You know, the person who starts reading their personal digital assistant (PDA), or the other one who suddenly falls quiet, or what about the one who starts to slide down his chair to the floor. Well, if you are the one in charge of the meeting, what is your role in this dysfunction? I recently heard a speaker, who was talking about the culture of accountability say, “You get what you put up with.” Bad behavior and rudeness happen because people continually get away with it.
