Tell me what you need to know, and I’ll give you an answer. Give me the highlights. Give me the best part. And that’s kind of what we’re doing. We like to get to the meat and potatoes of things.
A little bit of preparation results in a much shorter conversation. Staying on topic and realizing what the purpose of your meeting is allows you to address things promptly. Then you can do the other stuff.
