Lewisville, Texas (PressExposure) November 12, 2007 -- In Shirley Fine Leeâs book âR.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard's Approach â, in addition to noting how Roles, Agenda, Records, and Actions components of her approach should provide more productive meetings, the author highlights beastly problems that may occur in meetings and how to handle them. The ways in which people or situations can derail a meeting are attributed to various types of animals in the book. Ms. Lee notes the visible behavior, what the reasons behind the behavior may be, and what may be done by others in the meeting to change the behavior in both current and future situations.
Four examples of the nine beasts are: Growling Bears are people who argue during a meeting and therefore stress out the other attendees. Rabbit Trails occur when meeting members jump around from subject to subject and get the meeting off-track. Wolf Packs are pairs or a small group of people within the meeting who follow their own agenda rather the common agenda for the meeting. Sleeping Possums refers to those moments when prolonged silence falls upon the group.
