PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS.
During a meeting, one on one or just another one of the meaningless conversations to boost someones ego, please don’t answer a question with meaningless dribble.
It’s not only embarrassing for yourself but disrespectful to your audience.
If you don’t know an answer to a question, instead of giving one filled with Bullshit, do not be embarrassed to say you don’t know the answer.
…..But, just don’t drop the mic.
- Let your audience know you will get back to them.
- Give a time frame as to when they should expect an answer.
- Ask how they would like to receive the answer.
- Thank them for the understanding that you are not a walking database.
Remember there are some answers to questions you need to know at all times pertaining to your business. Otherwise you are an OVERPAID BABYSITTER.
Here is a little ditty:
The following 3 words may temporarily save your ass, when you are fumbling for an answer to a question from your Boss and can’t pass.
- Who knew.
- Go figure.
I would have to advise you just to admit that when you don’t have the answer that you will get back to them in a bit.
Just STOP the ” I know everything Bullshit” as it only makes you look like an incompetent TWIT.
Have a PHENOMENAL day.
