I Was Lost. Again!
Yesterday afternoon my co-worker, Kelli, and I had a meeting with a customer across town. She drove ahead of me.
When I arrived at the main facility, Kelli had already left with the group for the conference room, which was not in the same building.
This meant that I had to ask for directions—always a danger sign. Nevertheless, the meeting began at 2:00 p.m. I arrived at 2:20 p.m.
In all actuality the conference room was probably less than a one minute drive from the main facility. However, it took me more than 20 minutes to find it.
I was lost. Again!
Leadership Lesson (for people who don’t have a preference for Analytical Thinking): Either update your GPS system or arrive 30 minutes ahead of time so you won’t get lost.
