What is your advice about? Staff meetings

1: Leave with the minimum extra work possible – This is your objective for every staff meeting.

2: Silence is golden – Learn to treasure awkward pauses in meetings. Let them breathe.

3: DO NOT mention that you can play the piano – Save your skills for the cruise ship or at least your next performance management cycle.

4: Spend the first few meetings learning how other staff respond to misguided ideas – is it a wince, eyebrow-raise or pointed-exhale school?

5: Write things down in a little book. Often useful, this also looks good. We can all tell if you’re doodling though.
