The Serendipity of Showing Up
You cannot lead people without interacting with them. Whether you call that interaction "a meeting" is irrelevant. What should not be irrelevant is the substance. It should have a purpose, value or opportunity that connects to an intention or strategic end.
As ambassador I tried not to attend events, including meetings, without a satisfactory answer to the question, "What am I going to get out of it?" Sometimes the answer was, "Nothing, but I need to be seen" and, at times, serendipity would smile on me for having attended.
Never did I call a meeting without purpose -- at least I could provide relevance, even if others did not always do so.
