“Discussions, conferences and chats are necessary but time consuming. This time has to be used very efficiently. To guarantee this some basic rules of discussion techniques have to be kept in mind during talks and meetings, but also the following points (see the circular by Dr. Tiné, 1976). These rules are regularly transgressed in meetings:
1. Listen – let people finish speaking
2. tighten / streamline your contribution
3. stay on topic
4. only provide and tolerate relevant contributions
5. keep your composure with conflicting viewpoints
6. and again: LISTEN!
Please provide this note at meetings. It will help you and your interlocutor.”
