Approach" by Shirley Fine Lee gives examples of the beasts in people that sometimes
come out in meetings. The book explains each beastly behavior and how to change it.

Press Release Body: In her book "R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard\'s Approach ", Shirley
Fine Lee explains the RARA approach of Roles, Agenda, Records, and Actions and how
theses components can make for more effective meeting. She also talks about the
beastly problems that can occur in meetings and how to tame them. The ways in which
people or situations can derail a meeting are attributed to various animal
characteristics. Ms. Lee notes the visible behavior, what the reasons behind it may
be, and what the meeting leader or facilitator may be done to change the behavior.

A sampling of five of the nine beasts includes:
Darting Deer is the person that comes late to meetings or is constantly going in and
out during the meeting timeframe.
Repeating Crow is the person who just keeps saying the same thing over and over
during the course of the meeting.
Sly Fox is the person who tries to manipulate what others says as support for their
own opinion or idea.
Timid Mouse is the person who sits quietly during the meeting and does not openly
participate without prompting.
Wise Owl is the expert who provides so many details that the meeting gets bogged
down in information processing.
