GO!Governance: How to Run Effective Meetings
Ruth Nicholson is the founder of GO!, an expert resource service for youth sports operations. The key to shorter meetings with better results is taking the time to think through the purpose, activities and people related to the meeting before the meeting so that it is set up for success. Coaches know that one of the keys to a good game is in the preparation of players and their ability to make good decisions on the field.
