Looking for some advice from the M-T Nation.
I have a boss who holds daily meetings at 0800. You'd think that meetings held daily wouldn't take so long, but they can drag for 90 minutes or more even with just three people in the room.
Everyone at the command knows that the real problem is the that the Skipper uses this time to tell what we call in the Navy "Sea Stories". Each topic brings out another 15 minutes about how he used to do things 10, 20 or 30 years ago. We're all pretty sure he does this because (as the Commanding Officer) he really doesn't have any one to talk to throughout the day. The hard part is figuring out how to tell him that these meetings are really robbing people of their time without offending him.
