Who Is Really in Control

Presentation Slide

At first the meaning of this drawing might be difficult to understand. It portraits an effective time management technique. To some, hosting a meeting is the best approach because they feel they are more in charge. However, the opposite is typically true. It is the visitor that controls a meeting because they have the power to leave at any time using more a wider array of believable excuses. Remember, if you drop by someone’s office they cannot escape gracefully because you are in the doorway. The opposite is also true if it is your office.
