March MADness: Eternal Introductions vs. Total Tardiness

Today, we’re diving into face-to-face communication. When it comes to meeting with others, there are a lot of ways to go wrong. To make matters worse, it’s much harder to recover from a faux pas made with a captive audience. Which of these in-person blunders is the most irritating?

Meetings are already unpopular, but when you kick off every meeting with extended introductory conversations or tee-ups, it can make them seem like a waste of time.
