„Here's my theory about meetings and life: the three things you can't fake are erections, competence and creativity.“

— Douglas Coupland, Context: Here’s my theory about meetings and life: the three things you can’t fake are erections, competence and creativity. That’s why meetings become toxic — they put uncreative people in a situation in which they have to be something they can never be. And the more effort they put into concealing their inabilities, the more toxic the meeting becomes.
