The Meeting – The Late-Comer

The meeting started with Bob and I. As I thought it would.

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?
