Interpersonal Communication

Paper details:

UNIT V—Interpersonal Communication: You are the director for your organizations

financial department. You received the following message below from several managers, all

members of one of its key committees:

As you know, Terry is chair of our departments restructuring committee. We all like Terry

and think hes a nice guy, but his meetings are insufferable. If you ask Terry a simple question, he

responds with a rambling five-minute answer that only eventually addresses the question—and then goes

on and on. Time seems irrelevant to him. A meeting with three agenda items takes two hours, and many of

Terrys points could be better addressed in a simple email.

A few members of the committee are fine with Terrys meetings, but the rest of us have other work

to do. We dont dare ask him questions or open items to discussion anymore because we know will be

there for the rest of the day. While we dont want Terry to get in trouble, something needs to be done

about his meetings.

Regards,

without error are what impress you most. But his long-winded approach may be silencing

members of the committee that is seeking input from all its members. Therefore, youve

decided to share with Terry tips on ways to make meetings more streamlined. In two or three paragraphs, explain to Terry how he can do that
