The other day I was waiting outside of a conference room for the previous meeting to end. There was a group of individuals near me waiting for another conference room. As much as I pretended like I wasn’t listening, I was. Don’t judge me, we were practically standing next to each other and you would have done it too. Their topic of conversation was about effectiveness and hours worked in the day. The person who initiated the topic stated that she would rather have someone on her team who worked 8 hours a day and was very effective rather than someone who worked 12 hours and was not effective. The question she posed to her colleagues was “how do you teach effectiveness?” I love this question.
