Advice for all who chair Christian business meetings, by using the analogy of conducting an orchestra.
1: Prepare the symphony
Study the score – Gather the orchestra – Rehearse the concert – Set out the platform – Check the recording
2: Attend to the orchestra
Tune the instruments – Send clear messages – Watch all sections – Repeat key themes – Show no favouritism
3: Select the tempo
Study the whole symphony – Choose the right speeds – Keep the orchestra in time – Avoid conducting from the keyboard – Judge the concluding speed
4: Direct the players
Learn from the greatest conductor of all – Draw in those who aren’t playing – Control the wannabe soloists – Retune those who go off key – Consider whether you are the right conductor
