YOUR TUESDAY TIP – MEET THE HISTORIAN

Do you waste time in your meetings rehashing past events? Is there a person focused on what you used to do, not what you need to do? If so, you have a meeting Historian in your organization.

The Historian brings “frustration” to your meetings. Instead of embracing new ideas from others, they hold on to the old ways of doing things. They are resistant to change and listening to others.

The Historian constantly references the past, they like to do things the way that they have always been done. They are not open to trying anything new. This person reminds everyone about the disastrous results last time the organization tried something new.

With a few simple steps, you can manage the Historian and end your Meeting Misery. Discover if your meetings are efficient and effective by receiving our Meeting Audit Checklist. Click below to identify the Historian in your organization!
