Mistake # 65: Spend a day discussing the day-long meeting

Houston, Houston, we have a problem. The managers want to spend a day to discuss what should  be discussed at the day-long meeting. Hm. Do we really need to do that? To have a meeting about the meeting in order to plan the meeting seems…redundant?

 

What happened to the days when each individual manager could actually shut their door and outline their plans for discussion. Or, just take out that old-fashion thing, called a pencil, and write it out. Then, go back with the more 21st Century thing, called a computer, and bang out the content to fill in the blanks.

 

You can’t do it all, and the group tends to tackle too much at one time. Put things in smaller segements so that decisions can be made effectively. There. Short and sweet.

 

Happy Easter!
