Business meetings are held to get a specific piece of business done during a specific period of time.

Everyone attending shares responsibility for the meeting’s success. Showing up on time, being prepared, and silencing devices are important. But the person running the meeting also has an obligation to initiate an efficient, fruitful conversation.

And that requires earning trust.
