Offices are chatty places; the main social milieu of many people. But, the sad fact is, the warmer the conversational atmosphere, the greater the risk of dilly-dallying; of wasting valuable time. (Yes, chatting is fun, but it can steal enormous amounts of valuable time from each working day.)
So here are some ways to spend less time talking to people during business hours.
I. One-on-one discussion is-often more productive than a group meeting.
2. Urge people to come to the point quickly.
3. Politely cut short people who ramble.
4. If your impressions are unfavorable during interviews, do not prolong conversation.
5. Don't discuss important issues until after you've been briefed in writing.
