Best Practices: Arvid Povilaitis

Light bulbI have a number of direct reports throughout the country.  Everyone is busy with their day-to-day activities managing issues as they arise. In an effort to stay focused on our goals and strategic in our thinking, I have a permanent time slot set aside with each person each week that is “sacred.”  It sets aside a time to discuss anything we need to, as well as to catch up on the status of ongoing projects.  These meetings are sometimes very brief, and sometimes quite lengthy, as warranted.

Inform your supervisor what you’re planning to do, when you’re going to get it done and then do it.  No surprises.
