Reader Question: Tangential Exec

Note: this question came from the webinar last week. It’s revised from what I suggested at the time.question

Meryl, with one of my executives, I find myself completely lost until about 3/4 through the conversation because he will be talking about one subject and then jump to another one. How do I keep up and make sure we’re communicating appropriately?

Response – Note the difference in styles. Something like:

  • You have a remarkable ability to go in many different directions and then tie it all back in to your central point. My mind works more in a straight line that yours does, so sometimes I get lost. Would you be okay if I interrupt you when I stop following you?
