Have you ever stood in front of your classroom and found that not only were the students not responding to you in any way, but they weren't even acting up - just acting bored? It's very disheartening to try and give a presentation when it feels like everything you do just bores the audience. And how did you feel toward the one or two students who showed some interested and may have even raised their hand to ask a question? Friendly? Pleased? Maybe even grateful?
Faculty meetings can be like that for administrators. Just as you remember the students who pay attention and participate in class with more fondness than others, so an administrator is going to be more kindly disposed towards the teachers who seem to appreciate the administrator's efforts. So your task for today is to make a note on your calendar next to the next scheduled faculty meeting that you will listen actively to the speaker, and you will ask at least one question during the meeting.
