Morning Greeting Podcast
It is recommended that Managers greet everyone first ting in the morning adn that we don't close our door in the morning.
* I have a conundrum between this advice and the advice to sit down and plan your day first thing the morning.
Usually, when I do my morning greeting I get pulled into the work and tasks and issues of the day with my directs.
I find it difficult to get back to my desk and do a daily planning time.
Even if I do get back to my desk I have already been distracted and make some commitments to do a few things and send a few emails. And there is somebody waiting for me.
In short ---
When I get out of my car and walk in the office I am finding it more productive to sit down and start planning out the work that I have been thinking about during my commute.
They only way to do this focused work is to close my door.
And then after about 45 min I go out and greet the folks.
