Power Seat

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?
