Ten minutes into the meeting Michael appeared.
Who is Michael?
I never found out.
No introductions were made about who he was, who I was, why he and I were there.
I knew why Rob and I were there – we had set up the meeting.
If a member arrives late, it’s essential to take a time-out and make sure that everyone (in this case only me) knows who the newcomer is, why they are here.
Otherwise there is a nagging feeling that something secretive is going on.
- Who is this guy?
- Why wasn’t I told about him?
- What is his part in the deal?
