I teach a weekend workshop on how to make meetings work really well, including how to make them fun. I have an opening in July, and again in October.

The bad news is that to reach this point we've been having two and a half hour business meetings twice a month for three years! At this point the meetings are usually fairly efficient, but they're viewed by all as an unpleasant necessity. We often leave feeling less like a community than when we went in. I'm wondering if other communities have had a similar experience and how they've coped with it. Ideally, business meetings would be positive community-building experiences that would include some real joy along with the hard work. I'd appreciate any ideas about how to make that happen!
