Are You a Timely Concluder? by Trapper Woods, Father Time

trapper-woods3When business is concluded and social etiquette has been expressed it’s time to move on.

Make it a point to exit meetings promptly. Avoid lingering on the telephone. Discipline yourself to not hover over e-mail. Keep short discussions from evolving into office gossip.

Being slow to conclude is a hidden time waster that washes more time down the drain than most people realize. Maintain a formal professional stance and use closure statements to disengage in a timely way using your own style. Prepare closing statements in advance. Get good at using them and you’ll end up with a lot more time to do what counts.
