Sometimes it’s just (bad) habits that influence our effectivity or efficiency. For example at meetings:
- Are your colleagues always late at meetings? Just make the appointment at 9:28 or 9:33 instead of half past nine. You will achieve a completely different attention to your invitation. You will see !
- If people are failing to attend the meeting on time, start anyway and don’t repeat anything to accommodate the latecomers. It sometimes takes a little, but if you are consequent the nurturing will soon succeed…
- Starting punctually implies finishing on time, otherwise you aren’t consequent ant get inauthentic. Provided you have planned and lead your meeting well, and all participants are well prepared, that should work. If one time it doesn’t match finish the topic and postpone the rest. Successor appointments and the colleagues’ planning depend on your timeliness, too !
Again Timeliness: There is few things more annoying for meeting a plan than an unexpected late delivery. However at most times the provider is able to foresee that he will not be done in time. Strongly advise the colleagues to give notice of a possible delay as soon as possible to give you the chance to re-plan reasonably and thus minimize the impact.
