First of all, a sincere thanks to Mark and Mike for this great public service. I have been listening to the podcast for several years and have attempted to use advice (like the management Trinity) in my daily management.
My question is this - if a staff meeting's purpose is more efficient organizational and team communication, should I allow my direct's directs to be at the meeting on a regular basis?
The downsides I see are 1) the potential of my directs to be less candid in front of her/his direct, 2) taking time away from my direct's direct weekly billable time.
I hope I'm not over-thinking this one. Thanks in advance for your answers, folks. And thanks again to Mike and Mark for the fantastic work.
