Senior level people spend a lot of their working time in meetings that some time the time-consuming meetings may even leave no time for them to work, which is a common thing happening in many companies, even large-scale ones. And unfortunately, some time the meetings are meaningless as nothing valuable comes along and people call it "false busy". Therefore, how to efficiently carry out meetings in one's work becomes particularly important.

很多公司,特别是规模越大的公司,会议越多。职位越高的人大部分工作时间都是在开会中度过,甚至是开会开到没时间工作。但这并不意味着开会是有价值的,如果开会不能产生价值,它就没有意义, 我称之为“虚假繁忙”。因此,如何高效地开展工作会议就变得尤为重要。

When a decision is needed, an effective leader does not just fall into a single preferred style, such as using transactional or transformational methods. In practice, as they say, things are not that simple.

Factors that affect situational decisions include motivation and capability of followers. This, in turn, is affected by factors within the particular situation. The relationship between followers and the leader may be another factor that affects leader behavior as much as it does follower behavior.

The leaders' perception of the follower and the situation will affect what they do rather than the truth of the situation. The leader's perception of themselves and other factors such as stress and mood will also modify the leaders' behavior.
