Taking To Dos and Moving Up The Y Axis – AVC

If you think about what you are trying to accomplish in a meeting with someone you are managing and you plot the following: one the x axis – whether you clearly communicated the issue to the person; on the y axis – whether they walk out of the meeting happy or mad at you. Dick’s point is you want to optimize for the x axis, clear and crisp communication, and not worry too much about the y axis.
