Turning rhetoric into action


It seems that everyone has opinions and sometimes it feels that everyone needs to voice them at work and especially during meetings (compounded in larger meetings).

They also need to be sensitive to time management, the agenda of the meeting, the audience and whether or not their views will derail the conversation. The focus should be on how to help problems and move actions, and not just get your turn to talk. This posting counts as my turn to talk so I am ending now…
