The author is in line with much of the MT guidance, but provides a roadmap for where the meetings can go, and how to deal with the various eventualities. As a high D / high C type my urge is to always dive in and start solving problems, but sometimes the best thing to do is be quiet and listen to what's being said.

I'm glad you shared this.  I was about to, and saw your posting already here.

Its a great read, and may illuminate some of the MT guidance by saying similar things in different words.

It's a great article and worth sharing.  Thank you.

I found his blog before finding Manager Tools. He's not 100% in agreement, but covers a lot of the same topics. Effective meetings (especially no laptops), O3s (or 1:1 in his nomenclature), and so on.

His book "Managing Humans" is also a good read, although it mostly rehashes what's available on the blog.
