Letters to a Young Manager


All I do is attend meetings, #110
LTYM >

Please note that this letter is in-process; the following are my notes

Dear Sophie,
***
Comment made by a new manager (at DBC?) "I don't get any work done any more; all I do is attend meetings."

"What percentage of your time at work do spend in meetings? If you’re a middle manager, it’s likely about 35% of your time, and if you’re in upper management, it can be a whopping 50%. What’s worse is how unproductive these meetings usually are. "
***
Sincerely,
Ed
