I have a direct refusing to attend a staff meeting on a particular day. Currently we have our staff meetings at the conclusion of business on Thursday. For a number of reasons we have to move it to Wednesday. My direct has stated that he absolutely cannot under any circumstances attend on Wednesday because of personal commitments.
Wednesday, however, is the best day to conduct these meetings. Am I being stubborn in insisting that we must do these meetings Wednesday night? If I re-arrange our collective schedule am I "caving" to the pressure of a direct or setting a precident that if someone doesn't want to do it they just have to say no and make a little fuss and that is the end of it? Am I putting the wishes of the direct in front of the efficiency of the business?
Let me know.
