Candid Conversations: The Meeting Before the Meeting

In this Candid Conversation, John Maxwell and Mark Cole dive into the importance of preparing for important meetings and moments, especially when they’re with people who are, as John says, “bigger, better, and faster” than you. John calls this preparation “the meeting before the meeting.”

If you and your team want to walk away from meetings with confidence in each other, a clear vision, and the biggest return on your investment possible, this episode will equip you for your next meeting. John shares five strategies to implement in your meeting before the meeting, and he reminds us that the best meetings are paired with preparation on the front end and reflection on the back end.
