Is there a power seat in your organization? One where you put the most important person. I once dined at a restaurant in New York City when Donald Trump arrived for a quick bite. He sat by the entrance to the main dinning room where he could be seen and greet those who were on a first name basis with him. Gamblers prefer specific seats in Poker and Blackjack. When I facilitate board retreats I sometimes find the seating arrangements represent the challenges and opportunities an organization is facing.
What does your seating arrangement say about your cause?
