From Wikipedia: Rambler was an automobile brand name used by the Thomas B. Jeffery Company between 1900 and 1914, then by its successor, Nash Motors from 1950 to 1954, and finally by Nash’s successor, American Motors Corporation from 1954 to 1969 in the United States and 1983 in international markets. It was often nicknamed the “Kenosha Cadillac” after its place of manufacture.
This article has nothing to do with that. I’m talking about people who ramble. Not the car.
Here are a few ideas I want to impart as it pertains to taking a meeting:
- Really, really good (i.e., smart) people come to meetings prepared. They know what the meeting is going to be about and what their likely contribution and desired outcome will be.
- If you have something to say, say it.
- But never ramble. No one needs the backstory. Just give us the facts so we can move on and get back to work.
