When Jeff Bezos runs a meeting, there are strict rules. And one of them is not having a strict agenda.
At this year's Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, the Amazon CEO gave a glimpse of how he runs meetings.
"I make sure all my meetings do not have tight agendas," Bezos said Tuesday evening in an interview with The Verge's Executive Editor and columnist Walt Mossberg. "Tight agendas assume you know where you're going, which for a certain kind of meeting is right, [like] if you're doing your weekly business review and going through your metrics. But most meetings should be used for mild brainstorming."
"Thinking you know exactly where you're going is a lack of humility that doesn't let you invent," he continued.
