I’m currently in on on work meeting that is literally sucking the life force out me. I will never get the last four hours back.
I think I’ve made a few of these points before but since I have nothing better to do, what the hell:
* when speaking – have a point
* think about your points before making them – pick the best three and use them
* if it can be read and understood – send it as an email and have a feed back and Q and A call, this includes financials
* ask a public question only if the question will help the entire group not because you weren’t listing or want to show you’re ‘involved’ – all other questions can be asked privately (off-line)
I’m sure there are more but as of now these are the main ones.
And here I thought you had adapted to corporate life already…..
Remember what they say Al:
“Are you feeling lonely, bored or unimportant? Do you want to be the centre off attention? If you do then Call a meeting! You don’t need to explain anything or accomplish anything!!!”
