  • I try to keep my meetings brief and to the point, but also like to give time to generate some ideas and discuss concerns. The one issue I struggle with is that there always seems to be one or two employees that are change-resistant and go straight for the negative info. I have now begun to go to those employees a day before the meeting and give them a copy of the meeting notes. I ask them to read it over, offer any suggestions, and give me feedback. I also let them know that I want them to present those ideas to the rest of the team. Usually this will get them on board and they will sometimes even take the initiative to improve things! Thanks for the tips!I try to keep my meetings brief and to the point, but also like to give time to generate some ideas and discuss concerns.

  • Great List for all of us overloaded overworked never-finishers. But good priority and good articles and blogs you link; Life hacker is a classic.
    Best advice I can give; is working when no one else does; it gives the tranquillity needed for getting things done, although it usually means less sleep.
