Come alive in meetings — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Nine out of 10 people daydream in meetings, according to Training & Development. If you’re one of them, you’ll lose chances to impress the bosses, who pay more attention because they usually do most of the talking. When you’re in a meeting with honchos, take notes. Also apply the “15-minute rule”: Every quarter hour, say something. Ask a question, make an observation or express an opinion. If you’re quiet too long, you’ll fade into the woodwork.
