The Behavior of People in Corporate Meetings

Quote of the Day

The most important factor in the training of good mental habits consists in acquiring the attitude of suspended conclusion, and in mastering the various methods of searching for new materials to corroborate or to refute the first suggestions that occur.

— John Dewey


One of the engineer's in my group sent me this reference to a blog post on ten techniques that make you sound smart in a meeting. While this engineer did not name any names, I know several people that I regularly work with that use these methods.

Will I be able to keep myself from smiling when I see them using these techniques?
